It is very important to us that your puppy’s health comes first, so we’ve put together some useful tips that will ensure you have a happy and healthy pet. Our team of vets and nurses have plenty of knowledge and experience, and will be happy to share this with you should you need it.

• Check that the first Puppy vaccinations have been done

• Introduce to new situations and people

• Begin toilet training

• Research and buy items such as toys, leads, bed etc.

• It is comforting for your new Puppy to have something familiar around during the transition to a new environment such as a blanket from the Puppy’s first home
