Dog Owners first

Trainers Second

Our Instructors’ experience is vast and varied. It includes breeding, showing, participating in obedience competitions, judging of obedience competition work, teaching dog obedience classes, volunteering at shelters and most important of all, owning a dog, training that dog, ensuring they fit into the family and are socially acceptable. Our Instructors’ “hands on” knowledge and experience means programs are offered in a professional and relaxed environment, where learning is optimised and dogs are happy.
