Dog Classes

Classes for puppy and older dogs are held at Messing Village Hall, Nr Tiptree, Essex on Wednesday evenings; at Spring Lodge Community Centre, Witham, Essex on Mondays. Puppy classes cover all the basic cues and reward-based training techniques. The dog training classes continue basic reward-based training. Dogs move on to more advanced cues such as distance work, increasing distractions and extending stays and recalls. It is also possible to continue The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme. We also run workshops in Messing and Black Notley Vets. Costs from £8.00 - £10.00 per week (first class is £25 and includes an information pack, a Kong activity toy and a clicker).
