Thank you for your interest in our training club. The puppy course is aimed at puppies from vaccination age to approximately 20 weeks. We accept puppies from 10 weeks old having had their first vaccination as we use an indoor venue, there is ample parking so you can carry your puppy into the hall if you have any concerns, Please check with your vet for advice. Puppies crucial learning and socialisation age is from 8 weeks old so we feel it is important that puppies have the opportunity to start their learning as soon as possible.

No dogs are allowed on the play area in front of the hall, There is a notice on the gate as you drive in.

We train basic obedience and allow the puppies to develop social skills by inter-acting with each other in a controlled environment. The aim of the club is to encourage responsible dog ownership and enable you to have a happy, healthy, well socialized and well mannered dog.
