Its better to "BUILD-UP a puppy than FIX a dog" so early socialisation at our weekly fun puppy playgroups is invaluable. Your puppy gets the vital socialisation they need - they learn how to communicate properly, soften their bite and play with other pups in a safe environment.  All the family are welcome!  BOOK HERE

Our 4-week basic obedience course is perfect for adult dogs who would benefit from learning life skills and socialisation.  We especially welcome new rescue dogs & their owners - training is a great confidence booster for your new dog and starts you both on the road to developing a strong bond. Beginners & Improvers Agility is a fun sport to enjoy with your dog, classes every weekend!  BOOK HERE
