Dogs will need to have attended or been trained to the beginner/puppy level to attend these classes. If owners have carried out training themselves prior to attending this level course, they will be asked to demonstrate their dog is at the required level of understanding and training. This prevents other dogs in the class being held up.

Dogs in this class will have the option of working towards and taking the Association of Pet Dog Trainer Good Companion Awards at the Foundation, Progress and Jubilee levels. Assessments are completed regularly throughout classes.

We also run Intermediate level 2 classes for those dogs who are ready to work towards their Silver and Gold Good Citizen Awards, your trainer will discuss this with you as part of your Intermediate course.

You are welcome to bring additional handlers to class, including children who would like to be part of the training. Please check current Covid Guidance on booking as this is subject to change with latest government advice.
