Training classes & workshops

We offer a variety of weekly training classes including Puppy, Beginner and Rally Classes - fun for all the family!

Happy dogs need happy training methods and we only ever use positive reinforcement training that rewards good behaviour and helps build a strong bond between you and your dog. 

All participants receive a welcome pack that includes fun activities to do with your dog and a certificate on completion of the course.

Early socialisation, play and training is crucial for puppies to develop into happy, confident, well-trained dogs. Focusing on this key stage will help you avoid future behavioural problems, form a strong bond with your puppy, and ensure that your fur baby turns into a contented and loved member of the family.
