The Introduction class covers the first six classes (usually) over consecutive Wednesday evenings – these classes are the perfect introduction to the Club and trainers for owners and dogs. This class is intended for new members or exisistng members with young dogs although there is no upper age limit.

Over the first 6 weeks you will learn the essential basic commands while handlers learn techniques and consistency in training and the role and importance of rewards in the training process.

NOTE: We ask you to complete all weeks of the Introduction class if possible, as you will learn different things on each of those weeks and you will then have a good grounding to move on to our Starters Class.

We do not give refunds unless under exceptional circumstances, which would have to be agreed on by our Committee.

BEHAVIOUR:  Dogs attending our classes are expected to be UNDER CONTROL at all times.  Please note that our trainers, whilst highly experienced, are NOT qualified animal behaviourists so owners of dogs exhibiting behavioural problems, particularly aggressive behaviour, should seek professional advice from a qualified behaviourist-your veterinary practice should be able to make a referral.
