Help your puppy grow into a confident, friendly and obedient dog with our puppy classes


It’s important that your young puppy is able to interact with other dogs from an early age, as well as starting to learn basic commands. What’s more, exposing your puppy to other dogs and people from an early stage in their life will help them become a confident, well-mannered companion as well as minimising future behavioural problems. For this reason we hold weekly Puppy Socialisation Classes (“Puppy Parties”) at our practice, for puppies between 12 weeks and 18 wks.

As soon as your puppy has had their second vaccination you are invited to attend our classes on Tuesday at our Bathgate practice from 7pm – 8pm, or Wednesday at our Livingston practice from 7.30pm until 8.30pm.

During the session you and your puppy can look forward to learning and playing in a relaxed and secure environment.

A variety of exercises and information is covered in each session, including:

Play and exercise

Handling and examining your puppy

Neutering

Basic training- how to start

Dog Law- your responsibilities

First Aid

Common puppy problems; play-biting, toilet training, etc

The session is run by our qualified canine behaviourist. You will therefore have access to extensive knowledge on health, training, behaviour, nutrition and general care and they will be happy to offer any help or guidance you may need.

Bringing your puppy in to the practice regularly for fun sessions of play, rewards and training should also help to get them used to our team and surroundings. This in turn helps them feel more comfortable when they attend appointments with us in the future.
