Puppy Pre-School

Giving your new puppy the best possible start in life is vital. Here at Cooks Hill Vet Clinic our Puppy School will help you gain this.

Unfortunately we have had to temporarily cancel our Puppy Pre-school.
We will ensure to keep everyone up to date in regards to when our next class can commence.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
