Puppies

Vaccinations

Puppies can be vaccinated against: canine distemper, canine parvovirus, hepatitis and leptospirosis.

An initial course of vaccination for puppiescomprises two injections two to four weeks apart.

The first of these must be when or after the pup is 6 weeks old and the last after 10 weeks old.

If going to socialisation or puppy training we also advise kennel cough vaccination with the second vaccination, or soon afterwards.

This vaccine is given up the dog's nose, and is valid for twelve months and provide immunity within 72 hours.

Vaccinations are required annually, and will include a health check.
 

Parasite Control

Worming monthly up to 6 months old and flea control once they are outside.

Of particular concern now is lungworm, please go to this section.

 

Socialisation

Social behavioural problems seen in older dogs could have been prevented if the dog had been given the opportunity to learn social skills, manners and communication by the age of 16 weeks.
 
Taking your puppy to training classes will allow them to meet other puppies and people of all shapes, ages and sizes in a fun and rewarding environment (for both you an puppy!)
 
Training with your puppy will also help you build an incredibly strong relationship with them.
