Courses and Group Training Dates 2024

Bitches in Season are allowed to attend group sessions, please let me know.

GROUP SESSION BOOKING CHANGES

Groups will need to be paid for at the time of booking, once your place is confirmed, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

As groups are more challenging to organise there will be no refund for group sessions, however, if you can find someone else to take your slot, I’m happy for you to do that. Payment in the usual way via BACS.

The monthly graded groups can be booked and paid for one at a time – £25 per hour, max 4 dogs

Working with other dogs Groups are a batch of three as a course so you need to attend all three and it costs £75.
