Follow these expert tips to ensure a successful trip to the vet, every time.
Dog Trainer Charmaine shares her expert tips on making a trip to the vet with your dog, as stress-free and enjoyable, as possible.
1. Be socialised
It's important for your dog to be socially versed with other animals.
2. Keep on a short lead
When at the vet it's a confined space so it's essential to keep your dog on a short lead. Keep them up close and personal to yourself. The behaviour of dogs can change quite quickly in a short period of time.
3. Comfort your dog
The great thing about vets is that they know firsthand how to greet dogs and are able to get down to the level of the dog.
4. Visit the vet as a pup
Try to encourage regular visits to the vet so it's not a daunting experience. By working alongside the vet, it will be a win/win situation for all.
