Scentwork & Gun Dog Classes

Classes are starting again!

In the light of the rcent government announcements, concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reintroducing small training classes and private training with special measures in place. 

We have a waiting list for new classes, and need to complete courses which were started before lock-down. Please be patient at this busy time, and we hope to be able to assist your training as soon as possible. 

We apologise for any inconvenience, but we would like to do what we can to reduce the spread of this virus.

Best wishes,
Laura & the team
