Puppy Classes

A well-run, professional puppy course is a wonderful thing – clients look to veterinary professionals for the best advice, and we should be ready to give it.

Veterinary nurses, technicians and vets have a vital role to play in helping owners to set their new pups up to become a well-balanced, focused and confident friend for life.

Do you run puppy ‘parties’ at your practice? Do they go as well as you think they could? Or maybe you’d really like to set up puppy classes, but are not quite sure where to start – and you know that it’s so important that we get the advice right, at this crucial stage in dog development

Learn how to set up and run the Perfect Puppy Class right from the start, by gaining knowledge on all the essential elements and how to incorporate them effectively, and even create your own guidelines and supporting materials for your new classes with this interactive, supported module.

See what some of our past pupils have said…

“This course which is a real must for VN’s who are running puppy socialising classes in practice. Linda is a great tutor with a wealth of knowledge and experience and I can honestly say my classes have improved and moved up a gear since completing this course.”

Carolyn Turrall

“I learned a lot from ONCORE’s course. At the end, students were asked to put together documents that enabled us to consolidate all of our learning and ideas, put them into a practical format, and be able to take them back to our practice for use right away.  I look forward to classes they are offering in the future.”
