Training

We run 7 classes a week for various ages and abilities of dogs, from Puppy Socialisation classes for the very young puppies, to junior classes for the under twelve month ones. Classes are held to help your dog to be a good member of the family and include the basics of sitting, lying down on command, coming when called and walking nicely on a lead.
We can also help you to train your dog in the art of retrieving, scent work, heel work to music and clicker training.
Classes are held in our purpose built training centre and in the better weather in our enclosed field.
