On the first Tuesday of each month, we run a puppy socialisation evening. These are held from 7pm, and involve our nurses (Jenny or Milly) and Jez Firth, an experienced animal behaviourist who we are lucky enough to have in our local area.
During these sessions, Jez provides valuable information to help you and your puppy cope with your first weeks together and beyond, in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Our nurse will also provide your puppy with a one-on-one examination and desensitisation session, and will happily answer any medical questions that you may have.
To cover Jez’s time, the cost is £10 per puppy. Puppies should have received their first vaccination before attending, and should be no older than 16 weeks of ago.
If you would like any further information on these sessions, or would like to book your puppy in to the next one, then please speak to a member of staff.

Hello, my name is Jez Frith and I run the Animal Behaviour Clinic, helping dog owners across the North West deal with both behavioural and training issues. I have worked with owners and their dogs for the past 20 years, since graduating from university having studied Animal Behaviour. Working on a one to one basis, generally in the clients own home, I help owners to understand why their dog demonstrates a given behaviour, how it has developed then explaining and demonstrating an appropriate, positively reinforced training routine to develop a desired outcome. Over 20 years I have worked with a vast range of dog breeds with an even wider range of behavioural issues and training needs, whether it be an 8-week old puppy needing house training or a 12-year old Labrador showing aggression to the post man - I am here to help.
Many behavioural issues are attributed to a lack puppy socialization and basic training; this was when in consultation with a number of vet practices that we developed a puppy socialisation class. These are one off sessions that inform owners about the importance of puppy socialisation, the do’s and don’ts and how to deal with issues should they arise, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
