What To Bring To The Class

Your dog should have a suitable collar, lead and/or harness. Please note we do not allow the use of choke chains, shock collars & retractable, elastic, extending leads.  We do not allow “Bungee” type leads with elastic sections.

The collar should have an identity tag showing at least your name, address and postcode (this is a legal requirement). Telephone numbers are optional but highly recommended.

Please bring your current Vaccination Certificate to the first lesson.

You will also need:

  • Suitable Lead (see above notes re elastic/bungee type leads)
  • Flat Collar with ID Disc attached (No choke chain type collars)
  • If your dog wears a harness it MUST also wear a collar with ID tag
  • Dog blanket or bed (for your puppy/dog to sit on)
  • Toy
  • Treats
  • Poo bags
  • Grooming Brush

Feeding Your Dog Before A Class

We recommend that you feed your dog at least two hours prior to the class.  Hopefully, this will encourage your dog to be more responsive with reward based training.


We give advice on the correct fitting and use of  leads, collars, head collars, harnesses and other training products and can make recommendations on where to buy items.

Dog Training And Children

We encourage children to be involved with the training of their dog but ask that and an adult/parent is present for the training process. With puppies, children over the age of 10 are usually capable of handling and taking full control of their puppy during the class but must always be accompanied by an adult.

Children over the age of 8 are welcome to attend and be involved. Please contact us if you need to discuss children attending classes.
