*Each program is tailored to suit the individual needs of the clients in the class. If there is a specific topic that you would like to be covered in the program, you can request this when you enroll.

Please note we advise you to ensure you can commit to all 6 classes as we are in high demand and we don't have time slots available for catch up in person. We can phone consult to catch up. 

Things we don’t allow in class
• Punishment
• Yelling or screaming at dogs
• Illegal or harmful equipment – e.g. shock collars, choke chains

If your dog is currently displaying high levels of human or dog reactivity or aggression then you will need to contact us to arrange a private consult as we do have criteria for dogs joining group classes with other dogs and owners. If you are unsure if your dog is suitable contact us to arrange a FREE assessment.

These classes are in no way suited for any dog or human aggression.
