Our group classes are a great way to work on your obedience goals with your dog.
The half-day classes are packed full of hands-on learning, games and information to set you and your dog on a learning journey together.
Small classes allow for lots of individual attention and the large space used, allows for dogs and humans to have the space they need to feel comfortable.
The classes work with you, to set you up for success, no matter where you are starting from.
Suitable for dogs aged from 6 months, but great for older dogs too! Your dog is never too old to learn new tricks or change old habits.
Classes can be repeated as many times as desired, with the same dog and handlers, so we are always here if you need a refresher!
