Dog Training Classes
We run dog training classes every week on a Monday at Alice Park in Larkhall Bath and on a Wednesday evening at Bath Vet Group Rosemary Lodge in Bath. We also run a dog club which is both online and in-person- the aim of dog club is to create a group of people that can teach their dog, socialise and help improve behaviour and confidence. Our 8-week puppy class is designed so that you and your puppy learn life skills that you can keep using and adapt as your puppy grows. Our dog club focuses on all the key skills needed to keep your dog of any age to be happy and healthy.
Our aims for each class:
- To promote responsible dog ownership
- Guide you and your dog to form a positive relationship
- Educate you about everything dog from the law to how dogs learn
- Enable you to continue with positive life-long training methods
