Please note there are no classes next week (2nd and 4th of May) due to the classroom being used as a polling station. I’ll be texting everyone over the weekend.
Courses run every six weeks:
30th of May and 1st of June – 11th and 13th of July (The hall is being used as a polling station on the 8th of June for the election, so we’ll take that week off) ************** Class beginning Tuesday 30th is full ************
18th and 20th of July -22nd and 24th of August
(we’re off last week in August)
5th and 7th of Sept – 10th and 12th October
It’s £60 per dog for the whole course.
We are in Abington Community Centre- Wheatfield Road South, Northampton NN3 2HH (map)
Any dog of any age is welcome, including puppies and older dogs.
It’s a fun 6 weeks, learning tasks that are are practical, useful, fun and cool with down to earth, kind methods. We try hard to make training is enjoyable and in order to ensure that socialisation is appropriate, we have access to another room which we use as a “chill out zone” separating the class by energy levels, size or age if necessary.
Please ring us on 0751 976 2411 for more info or to enroll.

Class size is limited. With two trainers, everyone gets individual attention.
Recent studies have shown that it is safe for puppies to attend class after their first jab- the only difference between class and a puppy party is the training. Parvovirus danger is from other dogs’ toileting and in the odd time that there is an accident, we ask all owners to clean up after their dogs with our antimicrobial solution. There’s more info on the Parvo study here and here..
Puppy socialisation and bronze training includes down to earth hints and tips on how to communicate with your dog and how to help then listen while they’re excited. We have found that puppies can learn incredibly quickly and are easily able to reach bronze (tier 2) standard in the six weeks. In addition, we practise impulse control as we think it very important.
The tasks we teach are sensible, practical and useful for any owner and their dog. When someone passes this course, they are invited to join our advanced classes.
