One of the best reasons to come along is to allow your puppy to become comfortable at our veterinary clinic and with our staff (who will be very happy to provide treats and cuddles). We want to make this experience as positive as possible, so future appointments are less stressful for both you and your puppy.
Additionally, the socialisation of puppies is a vital part of their education and makes a huge difference to the development of a stable and confident temperament. The period of time up to 12/13 weeks of age is known as the socialisation period, where the puppy’s brain is like a sponge soaking up every new experience. The puppy’s brain develops at such a fast rate it is vital to expose your puppy to and form positive associations with as many everyday things as possible.
