Today Journey paid a visit to Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC) for his first checkup. He met several veterinarians, had a few treats along the way, and enjoyed himself immensely.
Making a visit to the veterinarian a positive experience is very important. You will want your puppy to look forward to checkups and to have those unplanned visits less stressful than they otherwise might be. Take treats with you when you visit your vet and make it a picnic for your puppy. You’ll be glad you did.
After the checkup, Journey and I sauntered along the boardwalk at the waterfront, saw a cruise ship, and took the opportunity to meet quite a few people including some children. He saw some horses pulling a wagon, saw the Harbour Hippo tour bus/boat and heard drumming by a First Nations group.
