COVID-19: Group courses offer specific training exercises to improve focus around the distraction of others, as well as working individually with your dog. The pandemic means courses are managed a little differently than usual and will have the required Covid procedures in place. You should read carefully the terms before completing your booking and on your confirmation email so you are familiar with procedures in place.
The next available training courses will be listed on the 1st November.

Includes some basic obedience training and activities such as retrieve, jumps, weaves and tunnel. Scent exercise and directional queues.
Available for owners (no dogs attending). A great session for puppy owners, adolescent and adult dogs. The workshop will start with a short introduction on communicating and how your own behaviour affects theirs. Followed by a Q & A session for individual questions. This workshop cannot replace a full behaviour consultation in some cases.
Please note, if bookings for a particular workshop are low it may not be possible to run. Please enquire if you are unsure of suitability.
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.
