Training Classes

  • Book a class: 6 week class “live” Zoom class, friday evenings 7pm, maximum 6 people.
  • 121 face to face training for 1-2 hours
  • Behaviour problems solved – 2 hour Zoom appointment that is recorded for you to keep. Full transformation package & free 15 minute catch up during your training.

Zoom appointments work as good as face to face – we don’t need to physically see your dog to train or cure it (in fact it can be detrimental to do so). We still see it in its own home via Zoom and can give you everything you need to overcome your struggles.

All you need is a microphone & camera, so a mobile phone, ipad, computer is ideal. Its very easy to use, you just click on link you get emailed.

Cannot resume hall training as insurance wont cover it at present.

Our classes are designed for all puppy’s & dogs of any age. We don’t just focus on “obedience training” as most other classes do – We achieve real life skills & real life results.
