Find the best course for you and your dog
Our courses have a clear structured format.
Each week you will learn new skills and build on those acquired in previous lessons.
Our trainers will use their knowledge and experience to help you get the best results for your dog.
To get the most from the course, it is important that you continue the work outside the class environment and practise the skills you learn between classes.
The more you put in, the more the bond between you and your dog and your dog’s understanding will increase.
If you are unsure which is the best course for you and your dog, please get in contact with us.
Puppy (Kennel Club Puppy Foundation)
This is currently a 7 week course for puppies who have had their first vaccination and are up to 6 months old at the start of the course.
The course aims to help you develop your puppy in to a calm, well-mannered dog that is happy to greet people and other dogs, respond to basic commands (sit, stand, lie down, recall), accept grooming / vet checks and understand the first steps in walking closely with you when on a lead.
Classes will be kept small (maximum 8 puppies) and the emphasis will be on helping the handler to enjoy the training process.
The course will be run by one or more trainers who will ensure that you get the best instruction for your puppy.
Each handler will be given a booklet containing information that will support what has been covered in the class and you will be able to contact your trainer via the web site if you have any concerns in the days between classes.
This is currently a 7 week course for puppies older than 6 months, puppies who have completed the Puppy Course & want to progress and for older dogs who may not have had the opportunity of previous training.
The course aims to progress puppies on from their initial training and to develop your dog in to a calm companion though basic obedience training.
In addition to basic commands, we will also cover recall at distance, ‘go to bed’, stay and develop your loose lead walking.
Classes will be kept small (maximum 8 dogs) and the emphasis will be on helping the handler to enjoy the training process.

The Kennel Club developed these nationally recognised qualifications for dogs to demonstrate their attainment of set levels of obedience.
We run courses covering the skills needed to pass Bronze, Silver and Gold levels and organise formal tests about every 6 months.
Classes run on a rolling basis so you can decide with your trainers when you are ready to take each test.
There is usually a waiting list for these classes.
We are currently unable to restart our Introduction to Competitive Obedience course.
Should the situation change, we will post an update.
This class is an introductory course in Competitive Obedience.
Places are limited and give you the opportunity to learn from others and also share your experience.
Positive reward based training methods are used and emphasis is given to building your relationship with your dog.
We aim to advise and inform on the standards and techniques needed for the distinctive requirements of competitive obedience.
Class members will have the opportunity to represent the Club at the annual Hampshire Rally competition which is a friendly inter-regional club obedience event hosted by a different club every year.
The funds raised by the event go to charity.
