Dog training will enable your skills to handle your dog in a kind and fair way. Want to know how to teach your dog to listen, come when called, sit and walk on the lead nicely? These are all things you will learn on a training course.
Even the most experienced owner still needs guidance. The training levels are designed to fit with any ability and allow for progression as your training improves.
If you have completed a training course elsewhere please contact us and let us know what training your dog can do already, otherwise you will need to start from beginners level; Nickel.
If you feel you need to socialise your dog, or work on your dog’s negative reaction to other dogs, then classes aren't the place to start, please get in touch.
