NEW LAMBTON VETS PUPPY PRESCHOOL

Proudly sponsored by Hills Science Diet, New Lambton Vets conducts a successful Puppy Preschool program.

It is a 5 week course and covers all the aspects you need to ensure your puppy starts its life being well trained.

Full details are available via our downloadable pdf document so please take a few minutes to read the content below.

We conduct a very professional program and we like our Puppy Owners to appreciate there are a few requirements in place.

Legal Requirements for your dog in NSW

Registration

All dogs, must be registered by six months of age. The registration fee is a once-only payment, which covers the cat or dog for its lifetime in NSW, regardless of any changes in ownership. You are encouraged to have yourdog desexed before registering it.

Discounted registration fees apply to desexed dogs. Having your dog desexed prior to registration helps to reduce straying, fighting and aggression and antisocial behaviour.

Microchipping

In NSW, all dogs must be microchipped by 12 weeks of age or before being sold or given away, whichever happens first.

Collars

In addition to being microchipped all dogs, except working dogs, have to wear a collar and tag showing the dog’s name and your address or telephone number when outside its own property.

Dogs in Public Places

Your dog must be under the effective control of a competent person at all times when out in public. This means that it must be on a leash and under the control of someone capable of restraining it. A small child, for example, may not be able to control a large dog. Under these circumstances, an adult capable of restraining the dog, should walk the dog.

Dogs are allowed to be off leash ONLY in designated off-leash but must be under effective control at all times.

FINES apply for not not complying with these regulations and the Companion Animals Act
