What is the training for?

Our Puppy and dog training classes teach obedience, good behaviour, doggy manners and life skills for puppies and dogs of all ages. We cover a vast array of training suitable for all levels including beginner, intermediate and advanced.  Whether you have a complete novice or a doggy genius we tailor the learning to you and your puppy or dog to ensure you get the best training experience.
Here are a few of the things we cover:
Socialisation, Lead walking, Recall, Impulse control, Trick training, Emergency stops, Manners around animals and people, Scent work, Heelwork, Preventing problem behaviours and much more. Our training is comprehensively designed around training life skills, gaining a great relationship with your puppy or dog and supporting you through every life stage from puppyhood to adulthood and beyond. 

How long does a course last?

Our training is modern and progressive, and can be booked in sets of 8, 12 or 16 classes. You can rebook and continue your training for as long as y0u like, as we never repeat the same class twice. We actually write our class plans each week according to the dogs attending as we prefer to be focussed on your dogs needs rather than just repeating the same classes over and over again.

How many sets shall I book?

You can choose to book as many sets of 8, 12 or 16 classes as you would like. There is no limit to how many times you can keep booking, as our training is tailored and progressive. 
We recommend that puppies receive some level of formal training and socialisation for the first year of their life to ensure you have a well rounded doggy citizen as they enter adulthood.
Adult dogs requirements will depend on any previous training, but as a minimum we recommend 12 classes.

Can I do more than just classes?

Abslolutely, and we highly recommend everyone joins our VIP membership program. You get access to over 250 online training tutorials to compliment your classes, live weekly video sessions with a behaviourist every week, and access to a dedicated VIP membership group for more help and support whenever you want and need it. VIP membership is half price if booked at the same time as a class.


We have lots of times and days available, as well as offering the flexibility to book dates to suit you in sets of 8, 12 or 16 classes. If you have a holiday or event planned you can choose the dates you attend from our easy to use booking calendar.

What to bring to class:

  • Flat collar or harness (Choke chains, prong collars are not permitted)
  • Standard lead (not extendable)
  • A long line maximum 5m (due to COVID 19 we shall no longer be providing use of long lines in classes due to transmission of the virus through surfaces)
  • Lots of yummy treats cut into small pieces. Thinly sliced hot dogs are great for training
  • Poo bags
  • Please bring your dogs vaccination certificate to the first session you attend or email a copy to [email protected]
  • Please dress for the weather conditions, to ensure you and your dog are comfortable throughout the session. We train in all weathers. REMEMBER, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!!!!!!
Water and water bowls are provided, but if your dog prefers their own please feel free to bring that as well. We recommend not feeding a morning meal, or at least reducing it, as the training is reward based and their tummy’s will fill up quickly!!!

Social Distancing and COVID 19
  • Please follow the social distancing rules set out at your venue.
  • Please follow all social distancing guidelines before, during and after class. Anyone not observing social distancing or health and safety guidelines advised by ourselves will be asked to leave immediately with no right of refund. Your safety and enjoyment is our number one priority.
  • Please bring your own leads, including a long line with maximum length of 5m. 
  • To assist with social distancing rules we ask that one person per household attends with their dog. This can be varied/ alternated between caregivers week to week if required.
  • Please wash hands before and after attending a session.
  • In the event of a lockdown, government changing protocols, or if we feel it is in the best interest of those attending, training may be conducted via an online medium instead of a face to face class where necessary as per our terms.
