Puppy preschool classes

Article Index

Who can come?

The Boronia Veterinary Clinic’s puppy preschool classes are open to all healthy pups that are younger than 14 weeks and have been owned for at least 10 days. There is no requirement to have completed the initial vaccination course.

Isn't there a risk having several not fully vaccinated puppies socialising?

Puppy preschool takes place before puppies have finished their course of vaccinations, so it is true that your puppy may not have a strong immunity when attending puppy classes. However, the prevalence of Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus these days is very low, so the risk of your puppy becoming sick from attending puppy classes is also extremely low. It is important that you don’t allow a fear of infectious diseases put your puppy’s temperament and happiness at risk by delaying socialisation.
