WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING
PUPPY SOCIAL GROUPS
WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS
A day-care for dogs, suited to
dogs who are social with other dogs.
Your dog will spend the day or half day engaged in mental and physical
games and training in the large indoor and outdoor play areas, with other dogs
who they will learn to see as friends, and resting together in our sleep zone. We will hold ourselves to a very high
standard for behaviour and cleanliness. We will limit the number of students per
day so that we can give each the attention they deserve. Students will be required to be physically
fit (as agreed by your veterinary practice) and mentally prepared to be in this
busy social environment. Dogs with a
stable medical condition e.g. Diabetes/Epilepsy/Heart conditions etc, should be
fine. Being fully qualified veterinary nurses, we are able to monitor and
administer medications as directed by your veterinary surgeon. Dogs will be graded according to their play
style, temperament and size and will be matched to groups accordingly. Dogs that do not pass the assessment will be
offered the opportunity to work towards admission to school by attending
classes, 1:1 sessions or behaviour clinics as required.
Play School charge: £13 per half day (7am – 12noon or 2pm – 6pm), £20
full day (7am – 6pm).
PUPPY PARTIES - FREE
GOT A NEW PUPPY? DON’T MISS
Your main priority with your new puppy should be to
have them meet as many new people, dogs and new environments as you can, but
this needs to be done very carefully by encouraging confidence and preventing
overexcitement. Get it wrong and you could end up with a fearful or bossy
puppy. One hour of FREE learning for you
and your puppy with Julie Brewer who has over 20 years experience training
puppies. Held in a stimulating, but safe environment where both you and your
pup can have fun.
Come to a puppy party to learn how your puppy sees the world, learn how
to understand their body language, and learn how best to help them become happy
safe members of your human canine family.
Your pup must be less than 5 months old and have had their first
vaccination (proof required) to attend.
Puppy Play Group - Puppies bite and have poor
social skills. At a Puppy Play group
pups will be matched in size and age and introduced carefully so that they can
play safely together and learn good social skills. The sessions will be short so that puppies do
not become over stimulated, they will be supervised constantly and
appropriately socialised adult dogs will be in attendance (when available) to
help them to learn appropriate play and social skills. Charges: £5 per puppy for a 30-minute session.
Crazy Play Group – for dogs who love dogs.
Dog attending this session are crazy but friendly. The sort of dog who just
wants to be friends but is sometimes too much for other dogs. Play will be
supervised and owners will be assisted in interrupting should things get a little
too exciting. Charges: £8 per dog for 1 hour.
This will not be a training environment, but I’m sure you will be able to
bend our ears with any concerns. Dogs must be physically fit, up to date with
their vaccinations and be friendly, not reactive or worried about other dogs to
