Group Courses

Build up your dog's focus

Group classes are a great way to work on your dog's focus around distractions and build up polite interactions.

Group In-Person Courses

Build the foundations around real world distractions

We maintain a strict upper limit on the number of dogs in our group classes to ensure that you and your dog get the attention you need to work with them successfully. All of our trainers are fully accredited with APTD, IMDT or both.

To book a course you will need to register your details with us, pay the fee and submit a copy of your dog's vaccination record showing all vaccinations up to date, including kennel cough. Please note this must be done no later than one week before the course starts to book your spot.
