BOOKING INFORMATION

Course fees need to be paid upon booking. Private training fees can be paid at the appointment.

 

If you are planning a holiday or suspect your dog will come into season during a course, you are advised to wait for the next course. If your dog is unwell or in season, they are unable to attend - unfortunately no refund is available.

 

Dogs with behaviour problems such as aggression/ barking at other dogs are not able to attend a training course. Adult Dogs new to training must be well socialised.

Courses have limited places available.  Once a course has started , the place is yours for the course. As such, regretfully refunds cannot be given for weeks you cannot attend.

 

Our courses are very comprehensive which makes them unsuitable for young children, however children of secondary school age usually enjoy the opportunity to get involved with training their puppy.
