About our classes...

We cannot train your dog for you - but we can show you how to train your dog. After all your dog lives with you and it is you that manages their behaviour every day.

If your dog is under 6 months old, and fully vaccinated, you can enrol on a Puppy course where you and your puppy will be taken along a path that will set you up for having a well behaved dog in the future. You will be taught basic obedience exercises and be given information that will help you to have a well balanced dog.

If your dog is over 6 months old, and fully vaccinated, you can attend Beginners classes where we teach basic obedience. It could be that your dog has developed some habits that you are not happy with; he may be jumping up, mouthing or have selective hearing when you call him. He may be in the process of training you! If you missed out on early puppy training it is never too late to start to train your dog may just takes a bit longer to get him back on the straight and narrow.
If you have completed a puppy course this class may be your next step along the road by mixing him with adult dogs.

Once you & your dog have achieved the basics you may want to go further by joining the intermediate group. In these classes we look to progress dogs and train towards The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme bronze award.

In the longer term you could join the Advanced classes. This group trains towards The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme silver & gold awards and beyond.
