Until we can re-launch our puppy parties please check out the New Puppy and Puppy Socialisation tabs.
Come along to one of our puppy parties – it’s great fun! Not only does your dog get to socialise with other dogs, but you also get the chance to meet other owners.
Sarah, our nurse, has a special interest in dog behaviour and can give you plenty of advice to help your puppy thrive and avoid future behavioural issues.
At Ark vets we are now able to offer a free introductory phone call with Sarah prior to your first vaccination or vet health check. During this phone consultation she can give you general advice on puppy health care, training and socialisation.
We can then follow this up with monthly consultations with Sarah until they are 6 months old. This will enable us to check your puppy's weight and dispense appropriate parasite treatment, but also means your puppy gets used to coming into the vet and enjoys their visits.
Plus when you return for vaccinations or treatment when your dog is older, they’ll be happy to come because they’ll associate the Ark with happy memories.
Puppies aged between 8 and 13 weeks are invited to attend on Thursdays from 1pm – 2pm at the Ark Veterinary Centre.
