    You wont be able to do puppy preschool I dont think - it usually finishes at 16 weeks. Just make 100% sure. most dog schools have puppy classes though.

    I think it has to be a personal choice about leaving or taking him. I imagine you will take him as otherwise you will be worried the whole time

    I would take him or yes I would be worried, added to that the dog gets used to being in a car. In NSW they have to be restrained properly in a vehicle.

    As long as if your in-laws have dogs that are fully vaccinated, if they have dogs that is, he should be fine to come for a visit. Just don't feed him before travelling, as some pups at that age can get car sickness.

    I am a SAHM so Bingo will have lots of company but the day after we get him we have to visit the in-laws and will be out for about 4 hrs in the morning. Should we take him (an hours drive both ways) or will he be OK on his own. My gut says to take him but I don't know. If we are out should he be put in his play pen (not huge,but not tiny either). I just don't know what is acceptable to pups and what isn't IYKWIM?
    Congrats on your new puppy. How exciting for you.

    I'm probably too late for this but, could you not put off picking your puppy up until after your trip?

    Thanks Occy

    He is booked in to start in 2 weeks. Because he is a small dog they were happy for us to come, and after taking a peek at the other enrolments I think they will nearly all be over 16 weeks.

    Thanks for all your replies

    We picked him up today and he is wonderful. A really relaxed, contented and social little boy. We are all totally in love. My kids were so good with him. My 4 YO especially, she is so gentle and understanding of him. She gave him plenty of time to adjust today and loads of time for him to sleep. He is perfect! Sound asleep at the moment in his own bed which is a first for today as he managed to find a comfy lap, couch or pillow for his daytime naps!

    Thanks again for all your advice. I'm sure I will need to pick your brains again soon

    I'm a bit embarrassed! Not only am I a novice as far as puppies go but I don't know how to post pictures.

    I will work on it though especially as everyone has been so helpful.....I just need a little time


    PS Our little man is fantastic. He is really settling in and becoming part o the family

    Aww cool! congrats! puppies rock, loved them so much i got two!! It's hard work but rewarding. I'm having trouble toilet training them, but i think we're getting there. My eldest one is enrolled in puppy preschool too. Not the youngest one yet. Thought it would be a good way for them to have time apart so they get used to that and dont get overly attatched. Then i will start her when he's finished, would be easier for me too of course lol. But i've been doing a bit of training at home. I have already taught Tedd to sit and lay down. Working on come, but thats a little hard as he's stubborn. Also teaching Leila to sit, so when they start puppy preschool they'll be super advanced whoop!
    Good luck with raising your puppy. I can't wait to see pics. dont know why but a lot of people i know aren't fans of king charles spaniels, but i have a little soft spot for them, they're beautiful!!
