Our group classes are limited to a maximum of four dogs to ensure plenty of personalised help as well as ensuring it is not overwhelming for the dogs. As with all of our training it is all science based and force-free. Most courses include written notes after each class (Agility and Hoopers only include notes on certain weeks).
The classes are held at our purpose built facilities at our Dog Academy in Whiston, Staffordshire Moorlands including large indoor and outdoor secure training areas.
If it is your first time attending classes with us we ask you to start on our Life Skills class. This class introduces behaviours required for all our further training. Even if you and your dog have done training elsewhere it is recommended to start with Life Skills to introduce you into our way of training and ensure all dogs are at an appropriate level for the Bronze classes.
When booking onto our Life Skills class you also get access to our online training Introduction to Dog Behaviour. This seminar covers dog body language, behaviour and how dogs learn and is really key to understanding our training so that you and your dog get the most out of it.
We run both adult and puppy Life Skills classes and once completed you can join any of our Bronze courses in Good Companion, Agility, Gundog, Hoopers or Scent Work, and then continue through Silver and Gold levels!
Most people start by completing a few different Bronze courses before continuing on to the Silver level, but some people prefer to run straight from Bronze, Silver and Gold of their favourite choice!
