Classes are held at the Sea Cadets' Pavilion off Tillwicks Road, Bush Fair, Harlow (Behind the Indoor Bowls Club and opposite the Esso Garage). Classes are held on Wednesday evening and Saturday morning. You can attend both sessions if you would like extra practice but still only pay one membership fee.
All the classes are fun and light-hearted in an enjoyable atmosphere, whilst still getting the job of training your dog done, under the experienced and watchful eye of Pat Clark.On your first visit to the class, please bring your dog's vaccination card with you.
Costs for the classes are as follows: £35.00 membership renewable each January, then £4.00 per lesson.
Progress tests are held every few months and rosettes are awarded for the top placings. These tests are not compulsory and are held in a relaxed atmosphere, and are nothing to worry about! They give both handler and instructor a good assessment of how much has been learnt and what areas need to be worked on.
Difficult/problem dogs can be seen privately by Pat in a 1-to-1 lesson at the kennels by appointment. If you need further information regarding private lessons or assessments, please call 01279 656633.

New - Kennel Club Good Citizen Award
Interested in taking your dog's training a little further?
We're involved in training owners and their dogs for the Kennel Club's "good citizen test". It's not compulsory, but many owners feel they'd like to gain their dog's "good citizen award".
There are three levels - bronze, silver and gold and dogs are tested by independent examiners. Good fun with an amazing sense of achievement for owners of dogs who pass the good citizens test.
