Mixed Age Beginners Class

Start date – September 8th at 7:15 pm – Book Here

The in-person Mixed Age Beginners classes are suitable for Puppies and Dogs of any age who have completed and are up-to-date with their vaccinations.  We teach through fun exercises and training games, and use motivational, reinforcing methods.  Each week there are brand new skills to learn as well as building on the reliability of exercises from past weeks.  We have loads of fun, and you can expect to learn the following when you attend the course, as well as having opportunities to get answers to your dog training and behaviour related questions.

It is essential that dogs attending the in-person classes are comfortable when in close proximity to other dogs and people, and that they are not persistent barkers, which can be disruptive to the class.  If for these reasons your dog is not able to join the in-person classes, the Zoom based class or private training sessions are the appropriate options.

Classes are held outside at our training venue – The Obelisk Centre, 400 Obelisk Rise, Kingsthorpe, Northampton, NN2 8UE
