Puppy Parties
Tuesday Afternoons At our Harpenden Clinic
3pm or 4.30pm 

'Puppy parties' are a great way for your puppy to learn how to meet and greet other dogs, whilst you learn some useful tips and tricks on how to care for them. Having fun at the vets as a youngster really helps them later in life when they need to feel confident and brave having treatment. 

Each week the session starts with meeting and greeting, followed by an interactive discussion on a range of topics and ends in a play session whilst each pup gets taken out in turn to be weighed and have some treats on the examination table. 


Socialisation is one of the most important things you can do to help them to become a confident happy dog. There is a certain window of socialisation, and our nurse will help guide you through the steps you should take to maximize this opportunity.
