New Puppy Information
As a new puppy or dog owner, you will be aware of the responsibilities that come with dog owning and caring for your dog. However, you will also benefit from the incredibly rewarding and pleasurable experience of dog ownership.
In time, with the correct training and care, your puppy or dog will hopefully become a well-adjusted adult who is a pleasure to own and a credit to you and the dog society at large.
When you collect your new puppy remember he will probably be nervous being taken away from its litter and environment for the first time. Here are some tips on how to make your new puppy as relaxed as possible:
Puppies also need worming frequently. We recommend every 3-4 weeks until they are 6 months of age.
At Rutland Vets we offer free puppy socialisation classes run by our nurses to learn more about health care and training for your puppy and the opportunity for him to meet and play with other dogs his age. Following on from this Leanne, one of our qualified nurses, runs puppy training courses to learn the essentials such as sit, lie down etc.
