Dog training

Training sessions at the kennels

We're now able to run training sessions in our facilities at the kennels. We've been trialling a few different timetables, and made a few changes so that it works best for you. See below for details.

Normandale kennels

We're now able to run indoor and outdoor classes here at the kennels.

The classes run for 90 minutes, except for the puppy class which runs for 60 minutes.

Contact us for more information.

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.

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.

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.
