Classes

We offer a progressive selection of classes to suit dogs of all ages and abilities.  If you haven’t done any formal training with your dog before, you will need to start with our Beginner class, before progressing to the more advanced classes.

During the six-week Beginner course we cover everything you need to have a happy family dog. Please note we only charge for each dog, not by the number of owners attending.  Family groups are welcome, and we encourage everyone involved with the dog to attend our classes whenever possible.  In this way, everyone will understand the methods, and this gives consistency in your dog's training.
