Puppy socialization classes at Glenora Family Pet Clinic
Our goal is for puppies and families to have fun and learn together. We also want the hospital to be viewed as a safe and happy environment.
Between the age of 5 and 16 weeks puppies are especially open to exploring new surroundings. Puppies that are not exposed to a variety of stimuli until 10 weeks of age or later can become fearful of unfamiliar sights and sounds.
Who can attend?
Puppy classes are a complimentary service offered to the clients of Glenora Family Pet Clinic. Puppies that attend need to have had at least one DHPP vaccine and one deworming treatment. Puppies that show any sign of illness (vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, inapetence, etc.) should not attend.
We encourage all family members to come and have a lot of fun with puppies!
Puppy socialization classes are held every Tuesday evening from 6pm and they last 30-45 minutes.

What happens during puppy class?
Puppy classes are informal interactive sessions that provide new pet owners with the opportunity to become more informed about raising their new family member. Discussion topics will include: hygiene and wellness, introducing the leash and collars, and house training.
During these sessions puppies will play together and simple commands (come, sit, stay) and leash walks will be practiced. They will become more familiar with being handled by other people and with new sounds and textures.
