Training Classes

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE: We are not doing our classes at present – BUT – we are doing virtual classes and have a dedicated Facebook page which is private to our clients so you get daily support and video tutorials each week, along with free EBooks and lesson plans by email.
This is a fantastic opportunity that gives you even more help than a physical class would at a reduced rate!

We also have teamed up with Absolute Dogs to offer you a 25 day challenge costing just £27 and you get to keep it all for life.  Please email/phone if you want to join us!
