Puppy Socialisation
Below are some details of the Puppy Socialisation classes we run at WHVC


Puppy Socialisation Parties  are held on Wednesdays 11.30am – 12.30pm or 5pm – 6pm.

 These parties are run by Qualified Veterinary Nurse, Louise Scott RVN. Classes cover 3 consecutive weeks and provide a valuable opportunity for your puppy to mix with other dogs, people and experiences. The early weeks in a puppy’s development are critical for building up social skills and the classes will provide an ideal opportunity to build your puppy’s confidence in a secure environment.

Whilst the puppies are allowed to play off the leash together Louise will give you useful information on training and puppy health as well as what to expect in the future. On your first week you will receive an information pack which should help you with any problems you may be having and give you some hints and tips on giving your puppy the best start.


  • Puppies should be 6-12 weeks of age
  • They must have had at least their first vaccination and must be fit and well.
  • Courses cost £21 (payable in advance – upon completion of the full course we will give you a £15 voucher that can be redeemed against non-food items at our ‘PetStop’)
  • Maximum of 3 accompanying each puppy please

Classes: Saturdays 10.00 – 11.00am & 11.15 – 12.15pm


Puppy training is a critical part of every dog’s development, socialisation and learning. Not attending a well-structured puppy class is akin to not educating your child to school until they are 17.

Scientific research shows that all behaviour and temperament problems in dogs are predictable and preventable, however, prevention is not only easier but much more fun than curing problems.

And that all starts at puppy classes…

During our classes we show you what to do and how to do it, so you can put it all into practice at home and on walks.

At the same time as training your puppy, you’ll have fun, your puppy will learn socialisation skills and you’ll get plenty of real-world hints and tips to help ensure a happy, well-balanced dog. Plus you’ll receive our exclusive Weekly Training Plans, a certificate and a rosette.
