Bubs and Pups Classes

About Bubs and Pups Classes 

Our Bubs and Pups Classes are an  innovative new class designed to help support your dog/s with the pending arrival of your new baby.

What’s involved?

Week 1 – We explore the things we need to consider when getting your dog ready for the arrival of your new baby. No dog to attend this week.

Weeks 2, 3 & 4 – We work on practical management skills to prepare for the arrival of your new baby, to limit stress on you and your dog.

This includes –

  • A solid sit, Lay at your feet quietly,

  • Walking beside your pram calmly,   

  • Back up, not reacting to a crying baby.

  • Car travel,

  • Bring your dog with you to practice. Dogs must be social with other dogs and people, otherwise we can offer a “one on one” session with you and your dog.

  • Take home class notes / lesson plans included to help you practice at home.

We provide the same exceptional experience at both clinics.

What an experience, amazing ♡
From walking in the door...to keeping my best friend in great health. Thanks Vets of Geelong for the level of care, and to Josie and James especially for their genuine care and empathy toward our family. #memorable

- Scott Jensen

Can not recommend more highly. The guys at reception are lovely, and the Vets & nurses really know their stuff. Our pets love them too ❤️ Prices are extremely competitive also, thanks for looking after our little ones!

- Anais Nin

Visits to the vet can sometimes be a difficult experience, but Vets of Geelong (Geelong West and Highton) make it that little bit easier. Very friendly staff and welcoming.
I really appreciate the follow up calls the next day - a nice bonus touch!

- David Keele

Have been to both Highton and Geelong West Veterinary Clinics and both have been outstanding with their friendliness, care and compassion towards both patient and clients. I was very satisfied with the care/treatment my animals received. I just received a follow up letter asking how my Dog is doing and some goodies/vouchers. How lovely

- Olivia Addison

Very happy with the service provided and would highly recommend the Geelong West vet to anyone who needs any form of pet care. Kind and caring staff who take pride in making you and for me my cat feel safe . The after care support is excellent aswell.

- Craig Smith

Our main vet Annie has looked after our boy Badger so well along with the rest of the team. They've really brought him so much happiness in his old age.
Love the ID tags as well, brilliant idea.
