Puppy Pre-School: The Essentials

2 vaccines; a 9 week and a 12 week vaccination for distemper, parvo virus, hepatitis and leptospirosis. These are required for general health of your pet and are especially important if you are going to board your dog.

Puppies should be wormed every 2 weeks until 16 weeks of age, then every 3 months throughout their lives. A broad spectrum wormer such as Drontal Plus should be used.

A diet made up predominantly of a good quality dry food such as Hills Science Diet Growth will provide all your pets nutritional requirements.

Flea control
Advantage or Frontline provide simple, safe, long acting flea control. A single application is 99% effective for at least one month.

Neutering or Spaying should be performed at six months of age. This helps stop your pet from having unwanted puppies and can help prevent some behavioural problems.

An identification system that can be injected under your pet’s skin and scanned to allow the retrieval of an identification number. This number is linked to a 24 hour database that can store all of your owner details and phone numbers should your pet get lost or injured. This is now a requirement of all puppies for council registration.

Puppy Socialization
Puppy Pre School is fun and educational training for both puppies and their owners. It provides early socialization to ensure your puppy grows to be well adjusted and gives a good start to training your dog.

Collar and Lead
To ensure safe control of your puppy.
