Classes are held every Thursday evening at the Briars Centre, Lightwater, and each course lasts 10 weeks.  Courses cover all levels of training with your pet dog, all designed to help you get maximum enjoyment from your training, and your dog.

Pre-Course Advice:   If you have never had a dog before, or you are having particular problems with your dog, we strongly recommend that you have at least one home visit before you join, so that we can give you more individual attention than is possible in a class situation.
