Hi

Just to let you all know that I took Cadbury who is now 10 weeks to a puppy party at the vets. It cost £5.00 but was worth it. There were 5 other puppys ages from 10 weeks to 18 weeks. We were told everything from training to cleaning teeth to test tubes with worms in. Micro chipping how it works and many other interesting things. The puppys were allowed to play all the time which was good for Cadbury seems he hadn't been out of the garden since we brought him home. At the end we had a drink and biscuits, also got a goody bag which when you added up the cost you got your £5 back and some more.
I would reccommend this to any new owners who's vet run these classes. I'm also going to take him to scallywaggs which is a training class.

Bye for now
Karen

Hi Karen

The puppy party sounds great,what a good way of socialising your puppy and gaining information,it's well worth £5!

Good luck with the training.

Hi Karen

puppy socialisation is fantastic - we used to go to puppy romps on a Saturday morning in a big field with about 30 other puppies and some older dogs as well - like you we paid £5 and went until Charlie was 9 months old - it was by far the best money we spent on Charlie, he is a lovely socialised dog now and is good with humans and other dogs.

By the way - we trained Charlie at Scallywags down here in Southampton - so I am sure you will find them as good as we did....

Hi Karen,

Thanks for the tip, i'm sure alot of new puppy owners will now look out for puppy parties at their vets too. Definately worth the money by the sounds of it, and whatever help you can get as a new puppy owner is always appreciated isn't it.

Hope Cadbury is doing ok today.

Bye for now

Hi Karen

I think that these are a great idea. I really wish that we had had this opportunity with Smudge as I am constantly worried about the levels of socialisation he has received.

These puppy romps sound like a great idea too - I would love a way of getting to know other dog owners in this area as we hardly see anyone whilst out on our walks!

All the best,
Nic

the vets that i go to have puppy parties. they last about an hour and they teach you how to do the daily check and what to look for. there were 7 pups at the one max went to and we all got to handle all the pups. the pups had a great time and so did the owners. we all got a goodie bag at the end and it was all free :D

Holly went to a puppy party very similar to the one Max went to by the sound of it. It was held at our vets one evening for about an hour, there where 6 pups in total, and it was a chance for pups to play with each other and meet other adults. We also got plenty of advice from the people running it and they gave us a good contact number for puppy trainig classes, which Holly is now going to. And all this for free!

Its definitely worth asking around
