Group training is great for the regular practice and the opportunity to work around the distraction of other dogs.  However, you may prefer some one to one help, perhaps due to your work schedule or because a class environment may not be suitable for your dog.

Park training usually takes place at Danson Park, Bexleyheath.  Hall Place, Bexley and Chislehurst Recreation Ground.  It’s possible for sessions to be held in other locations – please enquire.

BOOKING INFORMATION

Courses can be booked online and payment will be required when booking your place. Private Training needs to be booked via phone/email and you can pay for your service in advance by bank transfer or in cash on the day.

If you are planning a holiday or suspect your dog will come into season during a course, you are advised to wait for the next course. If your dog is unwell or in season, they are unable to attend – once booked a course place is your own so once a course has started, unfortunately we cannot refund for weeks you are unable to attend.

Dogs with behaviour problems such as aggression/ barking at other dogs are not able to attend a training course in the first instance. Adult Dogs new to training courses must be well socialised. An assessment can be arranged if required.

All courses have limited places available and you are not guaranteed a place on any course unless it is booked and paid for.

Our courses are comprehensive which makes them unsuitable for very young children, however older children usually enjoy the opportunity to get involved with training their puppy/dog.
