Training Courses

All courses last for six weeks. Courses are usually limited to six dogs to ensure that individual attention can be given when needed. Each handler may only bring one dog to class. Please come and join our classes, they are small, fun and informal. Valerie is happy to alter the class content, if appropriate, to work on any individual needs of dogs and owners. You are welcome to bring a partner or friend to the course and children are always welcome.

Classes are held at St Paul's Church Hall, High Street, Forth on Wednesday, Carluke United Reformed Church on Monday and Christ Church Hall, Cleghorn Road, Lanark on Friday.

If you would like a class in your area please contact us as we are looking for new venues particularly where positive training is not yet available.
