All customers currently training with us will be receiving information shortly including directions and dates for when your training will transfer to the new premises, and all new customers are receiving the new information from now!

We will continue to run the same classes during the weekdays, evenings and Saturdays that we have been running for years, the same 1-2-1’s and workshops will continue to run and develop plus we will have 2 paddocks to be able to offer more people training when they need it and I will soon have space for my Canine Conditioning work as well with padded flooring and all the equipment we could require! Your training by us will of course continue to be the high standard you are used to and we are thrilled to be able to offer our training customers and our training team this opportunity!!

We will have photos soon of the new premises (currently the construction is being finished) and if you have any queries about the new premises, location etc please contact us in the office - email is the best way to get hold of us on
