We want you to have a great experience, and that is why we use spacious, "real-life" outdoor venues wherever possible and keep our groups relatively small in numbers. This means your dog will have plenty of space if they need it and they will meet other dogs in a controlled and safe way.
You will benefit from individual support throughout our sessions, and we tailor exercises to suit each pup or dog regardless of age, breed or previous experience.
You are more than welcome to bring family and friends along so that everyone can join in the fun!
Contact us if you have a puppy under 20 weeks so we can discuss which sessions would best meet your needs. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you want to find out more. If you want to see what we do for yourself, just pop along and view one of our activities in action - no appointment needed.

It is suitable for almost all puppies and dogs regardless of age, breed or experience. If your puppy is under 20 weeks, please contact us to discuss which venue would be the most suitable for you and your puppy.
It's also a great activity to support ongoing socialisation, confidence building and many rescued and re-homed dogs have benefited from this session.
You'll get invaluable advice and tips on socialisation, training and addressing unwanted behaviours, and as an added bonus you'll try out lots of fun stuff such as scent-work, fun agility and trick training too!

Karen and Phil show so much passion and love what they do. Jac has come such a long way since starting the Bronze Course. All sessions have been backed up with weekly factsheets which makes it easy to practice at home.
Leann and Jac the Border Collie
Sidney and I thoroughly enjoyed our bronze fun, tricks and training sessions. There was lots packed in, but it never felt rushed or overwhelming.
Very informative but relaxed and fun training sessions

Absolutely loved the Bronze and can't wait to start silver! Karen and Phil are both amazing and very helpful throughout every lesson. Marshall has come along brilliant and we are looking forward to learning much more!

I had a great experience on Silver as I learnt a lot more in depth training techniques to help Alfie. I do the training at home, and he is making real progress. I'd like to thank Karen and Phil for their their support with my mobility issues
