Below, we have tried to answer the most common questions visitors to this our website may have. If you find that your question is not answered on this page, please email us at

I want to start training, how do I join?
Just come along on a Friday evening, any time between 7.15pm & 8.30pm, with your dog (only if they are fully vaccinated). You can enrol & pay your membership fee then you are more than welcome to stay for as long as you like to observe some classes. You'll socialise with your dog for a further week and then we will get you started in a class.

Does my dog need vaccinations?
Yes - all dogs must be fully vaccinated as this is a Kennel Club rule. We will need to see your dogs vaccination certificate before they can partake in classes, if you do not provide this proof then you will not be permitted to attend.
* If your dog has had a Kennel Cough vaccine/nasal spray either for their puppy vaccs or their booster at any point throughout the year then they must not attend for at least 3 weeks afterwards, this is because it is a live vaccine and therefore the virus is active and can be passed on to other dogs.
* If you have a puppy having their first vaccinations they must be clear which means he/she can not attend for at least two weeks after their second vaccination.

How old does my dog have to be?
Your dog can attend at any age as long as it is fully vaccinated & microchipped before enrolment.

Does my dog need to be microchipped?
Yes, now this has become law this must be done before you can attend. We have a scanner and will check all new members.

Do I need a specific type of collar?
We suggest a half check collar but any correctly fitting collar is fine. We do not allow flexi leads to be used in class. Harnesses are not recommended (except if used because of an injury or suchlike).

How much does it cost?
We charge an annual membership of £10.00 and then a further fee of £3.00 a week, per dog.

How long does a course last?
We do not have courses that run for a certain period of time, we run classes every week, for as long as you wish to partake, whether that be 10 weeks or 10 years!

Do you have a waiting list?
Sometimes we do but just pop along and we'll get you started as soon as we can.

Can my child handle our dog in class?
Our insurance states any handler must be 13 years or over. If younger they are more than welcome to sit and watch but unfortunately can not go into a class. All under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.

Do I have to have a pedigree dog to join?
No you do not.
Pedigrees, Crossbreeds and Mixed breeds are all welcome.

I have a rescue dog, can I join?
Yes, of course, we have many rescue dogs as members. However, we do recommend that you have had your new family member for a good few weeks before coming along. This is so you have had time to create a bond and know your dogs characteristics.

I’m a member, what happens if I miss a class?
Please text us using the phone number given when you first joined, email on or Facebook us at if you are going to be absent on any club night. Please bear in mind that club rules state that if you miss three weeks without contacting us you will automatically forfeit your place in the class and will be returned to the waiting list.

Can I come along to have a look?
Please do - follow the directions given on the Contact Us page of this website and come and have a look. (And, can bring your dog too if fully vaccinated)
