Adolescent Class – Adolescence is notoriously the hardest stage of your dog’s development as it is usually where they forget any previous training and start pushing all boundaries especially recall and walking on a loose lead.

Parkour – Parkour is all about teaching your dog body awareness and helping them learn to navigate various obstacles by going over, under, around, through and in them over a four-week course or workshop. This is a great one for building a bond together with your dog helping them use physical energy to navigate the obstacles too. You will learn how you can make more out of your dog’s daily walks too by keeping them engaged with you, meaning that your recall cue may not be used as much as your dog wants to stay and be with you instead.
