GROUP TRAINING

 

The primary aim of all training through group schools & mini-courses is to provide you with the skills, knowledge, understanding, encouragement and support to successfully continue working with your puppy / dog in your own time .

Training is a process not an event and relies upon regular practice over days/weeks/months. 

Training requires commitment, consistency and patience - there is no magic wand!

All training is supported by session handouts as appropriate.

Please see below for details of all group training currently available.

ALL BOOKINGS ARE NOW TAKEN ONLINE

 For any questions before you book, please contact me using the Contact form on the Contact page or email me at: thepuppyadviser@gmail.com

Thank you
