Bite-Size CPD: How to Run a Good Puppy Party in the Veterinary Surgery
A puppy party is an excellent source of information for owners seeking to prevent severe behaviour problems such as aggression and nervousness, as well as the more common issues such as feeding, exercise, stimulation, vaccinations, play biting, destructiveness, dealing with fear and house training.
Recently in-house puppy parties have come in for a great deal of criticism by animal behaviourists for causing more problems than they prevent. One of the reasons for this criticism is allowing the puppies off lead for socialisation purposes.
Tonight's lectures will give you the pros and cons of puppy partying, and help you avoid the pitfalls to make your puppy party a resounding success!
Delegates will consider:
Socialisation, what it is and what it is not.
How puppies learn.
Puppy interaction, to allow free play or not?
Which exercises to teach at the class, why?
This course is warmly recommended for student and registered veterinary nurses who have an interest in young patients and behaviour issues.
