Behaviour Advice and Puppy Parties

Pet Behaviour Advice

We are able to offer behavioural advice at Shepherds' Vets. If you have any concerns about your pets behaviour, do not hesitate to contact the surgery. We are happy to provide pet behaviour advice for all kinds of problems ranging from firework phobias, to inappropriate urination and aggression for example.
For behaviour advice, call today on 01562 822986.

Puppy Parties

A puppy's first few months are the most important of its life. The socialisation skills and things they learn about their environment during this time stay with them forever and help shape how they are as adult dogs.

The Puppy Parties at Shepherds' Vets are run so that your puppy can socialise in a safe environment where they will meet puppies of a similar age. They will also become used to the surgery surroundings and staff, hopefully enabling them to feel more relaxed when they visit again for boosters, or if they require veterinary treatment in the future.

Our puppy parties are aimed at puppies aged 8-16 weeks, and puppies that have been vaccinated with us can join as soon as 1 week after their first vaccination, free of charge. They are an excellent starting point for socialisation, aiming to ensure that your puppy will grow into a well-rounded,confident and happy adult dog.

Each Puppy Party "course" consists of 4 party evenings, whereby our nurses discuss different topics with you each week, ranging from behaviour, dental care and nutrition advice for example. The sessions usually last about 45 minutes and also include supervised puppy play time, giving your puppy the chance to socialise with other puppies (as well as giving you the opportunity to socialise with other owners!).

The parties take place in the surgery every week (subject to numbers!)

Booking is essential - to enquire about puppy parties, contact the surgery on 01562 822986.
