About
Here at Cedarwood Veterinary Practice we run a monthly socialisation party for all of the new puppies who have joined us in the previous weeks. They are a one-off, relaxed welcome to the practice run by our dedicated puppy party team. The party gives you and your puppy an opportunity to meet other puppies and owners and are a fantastic way of socialising your new puppy in a safe, controlled environment. Our team of nurses provide plenty of information, games and advice on the night. All puppies are invited to the party upon their first vaccination appointment.

The puppy parties are scheduled for the start of every month, they start at 6.30pm and usually last from 1 hour – 1 ½ hours. There is a £10 deposit to pay to secure your place, however this is redeemable on the night against toys, leads and treats. If you pay the deposit and are unable to attend, the deposit will be donated to our chosen charity.
