    Vaccinations usually cost around the ball park figure of $50+. Some are more than others, some might charge you $68, some less. Look, it depends on your vet and the vaccination given.

    Same with puppy school. You are asking for a ball park figure that can range from one extreme to the other - as others have pointed out, the costs differ greatly depending where you live, who is running them, what they offer... .

    Good luck.
    Thanks DA! I took her out just then and she did wee's but no poo. She did poo at about 6pm though so maybe she doesnt need to go.

    Thanks for the advice re: Vacc's and puppy school too! Might go and enquire with my local vet tomorrow or on Monday.

    Speaking of which...are all vets 'equal'? I know that with humans there are good GP's and bad GP's! Is this the same with vets? How do I choose a good one?

Do as DA said - don't look at her, don't talk to her, don't move - and be prepared to stand there for a very long time. When she does go, act like it's the most awesome, exciting thing in the whole wide world! Give her HUGE "good girls" and pats or a treat.
    Ahhh! I see! That does make sense! I guess I should have the treats in my hand ready to give as soon as she has done her business. She went just before and I did the good girl then then gave her a treat when we came inside. Is that too much of a delay for her?

    TIA!
    Of course it depends but this is what mine cost:

    Puppy pre-school was $40 for the entire course which I think was one day a week for 6 weeks - so pretty cheap and was a good school too

    I think (bad memory lol) it cost me $60 for the C3 Vaccination and then $80 for the C5 (Is that the one that is done annually?)

    Give her treats / praise immediately so she learns that her good behaviour = mum is very happy with her.

    As for vets... I find they are just like GPs - there are good and bad. Do any of your friends have pets? Could they recommend one to you? Also, it also comes down to personal preference and how you get along with them too - if your not comfortable then your pet probably won't be.

    More Q's!!!

    I am assuming its normal for puppies to sleep a lot? Am I right?

    Poppy got up with me at 4 am and wee'd outside...then poo'd inside!

    Then I took her out again at 7.30 and she poo'd but no wee.

    Then she had her breaky, we played for a while, now she is snoozing at my feet again.

    Also...can you bath a puppy too much?

    The breeder said she baths her puppy's every 4 days. And Poppy was done on Friday. But this morning when we went out on the grass it was wet from the rain so now she is a bit dirty around the feet area. Should I hold off for another 3 days before bathing her or not?

    TIA!

    Yes, puppies sleep - A LOT. Just like babies, but I can see you haven't got babies. Lol.

    Yes, you can bathe a dog too much, certainly. Too much bathing rips the oils out of their coats, and can also cause skin problems.

    If her feet are dirty, just wipe them with a towel or something! Every four days is VERY VERY frequent. *frown*
