Group Classes

Our classes are held at St Joseph's Church in Havant on a Saturday morning, and in Newlands Community Hall in Waterlooville on a Sunday.

The classes are ran by an IMDT  and Dog Training College qualified trainer, using scientific reward-based training .

We will not use force, fear or intimidation on our dogs.. or their handlers!

There is absolutely no need for it in the dog training world.

Our 50 minute relaxed classes have a maximum of 4-6 dogs, depending on the course. 

This is so your trainer can still give you the attention you deserve and keep on track with your progress, plus easily spot anything that needs addressing.

Once on our classes, you will be invited to join our private Facebook members only group.

Please see below for more details on each class available.

Once you have completed our classes, you have the option to progress on to Bronze, silver and then gold.

These more formal levels require a minimum standard to pass.

Please ask at our classes or message for more information.
