We started our Puppy School, “PAWSITIVE PUPPY SCHOOL“ in November 2013, Nikki our practice manager runs this school from our La Lucia practice, every Saturday at 6.30am. Puppies from 12 weeks of age (or after receiving their second vaccination) to 5 months of age undergo a 6 week course of basic puppy training and socialisation. This is important for a well behaved and socially balanced puppy.
