Training classes

Dog and puppy training classes.



Classes are small so you and your dog get lots of individual attention. I tailor all activities to suit everyone present so you and your dog will come away challenged and stimulated whatever your level.


Classes held on Saturdays in Epping at 10am for older puppies (up to 1year) and 12noon for young puppies and 11am for beginner/intermediate. Please contact me to find out what group you should be in (07802 967449).


Puppy class caters for all those lovely pups out there under six months old that need to socialise and learn how to deal with the world around them as well as picking up obedience skills in a fun environment.


Beginner/intermediate classes tailored to cater for each dog's abilities. They will also focus on FUN - if training is not fun then the owners and the dogs will not want to keep doing it! Lots of recall and walking to heel too.

For those whose dogs have learned the basics and I will push on more with their training - there are no limits to what your dog can learn!


The classes cover all a dog's learning needs for everyday life from loose-lead walking, recall (including around other dogs!), sit, down, stay, tricks as well as more advanced training such as scent work and direction.


I am an IMDT-qualified instructor which means I use modern, progressive methods of dog training. Handlers in my classes learn how to get their dog to actively learn and enjoy learning.


Saturday lessons at Theydon Garnon Scout Hut, Flux's Lane, off Stewards Green Road, (next to Epping Golf Club and Coopersale Hall school). Postcode CM16 7PE (but please look it up first as some satnavs take you onto M11!)
