Due to COVID19 and the restrictions that are put in place to minimise face-to-face contact, we are doing everything we can to offer options that enable clients to drastically reduce contact inside the clinic. This means even staying out of the clinic entirely if possible, whilst still receiving our veterinary services for your pets.
We would like to continue to offer puppy preschool; however it will be conducted ONLINE via a FREE video conference platform named WEBEX. You can download on your smart device.
We will be running these classes with the same content (and still over 4 weeks), at a reduced cost of $100 (due to the unfortunate but necessary absence of face-to-face puppy socialisation/interaction). We still encourage you to have your dog present in the online class and in full view of camera. We have a limit of about 8 puppies per class but there is no limit on how many people in your family you would like to participate in this online class! Keep in mind however that the less distractions, that more that the puppies and owners will get out of the lessons. Just as long as we have interaction with your puppy in view of camera!
Puppies have a socialistion/learning window of opportunity between 4 and 14 weeks of age, so we do not want them to miss out during this valuable time. There is SO much that pups and their owners can learn, including “safe socialization” over the next few months. Our wonderful Veterinary Nurse and Trainer Mel will be conducting these classes. She will be more than happy to call you to discuss further. If you have further questions, please get in contact with us, leave your details and we’ll get Mel to run through class structure with you.
