£75 for 6 weeks
These are fun agility sessions aimed to promote confidence and develop a great bond between you and your dog. Agility is an energizing activity for both you and your dog and so much more fun than running on a treadmill! Sessions will help develop your dog’s confidence and speed to work away from you round a course of jumps and other obstacles.
Dogs must be over 12 months in order to participate in agility as below this age, they are still growing and can put too much strain on their limbs. Basic obedience is required as your dog will need to be able to work off the lead. £10 discount for ongoing courses.
This session is full of fun tricks to teach your dog and impress your friends with. Different pieces of equipment will be used to encourage you to ‘think outside the box’ and utilise equipment that you have at home already. You never know, this could be your start to you both becoming the next Britain’s Got Talent winner!
This is a 6 week course for dogs of all ages and levels of training. It will help you learn about dogs’ amazing senses and encourage you to utilise all of them to mentally wear them out without having to walk miles and miles in order to stimulate your dog. We will include scentwork as well as arousing their other senses.
