We accept all breeds of dogs for training with classes ranging from beginners from 12 weeks of age to Classes 1 to 4 where owners and dogs can continue to learn and improve their skills.

Dog training is a fun way to connect with your dog and there is no limit to what your canine friend and you can learn.
