The Social Club

Walk, train and socialise your dogs in a safe environment and ask for advice from the trainers. Maximum of 10 dogs. You will need to talk to others in the group before letting your dog off lead. You may want to take it in turns in the field to give your dog a rest. Remember that all dogs need to enjoy the experience. This is NOT a let your dogs off lead for a free for all while you chat to other people, as this would be asking for trouble. Use the time to practise your training with controlled distractions.

The Canine Hub

We have a “games based” approach to learning. Playing short, three minute, fun games, will help your Canine buddy make the right choices. The more you reward the right choices, the more instinctive and natural those choices become. You will also build an awesome bond between you and your canine best friend as you learn together, meeting other like minded people.

Mallow, Conker & Jess

We also offer Awesome Agility classes, starting from foundation classes for puppies older than 5 months,  beginner agility classes for dogs older that 12 months, to dogs and handlers who compete in competitions. Equipment used is KC standard, with rubber contacts. You can be sure that you will enjoy your learning experience with like minded people in a safe and secure environment.
