Training

Indoor Training

Indoor training is at the Ladywood Leisure Centre and is primarily concerned with the behaviours which your dog needs to be your trusted companion. These include Heelwork, Socialising, Recall, Sit, Down, Stand, Stay and Leave

Training sessions are held every Friday night from 7.30 – 9.30 pm with sessions alternating between Beginners and Advanced throughout the evening. For new entrants there is a short Induction and basic training session where we assess what your dog can do and prepare it to enter the Beginners class. Indoor training runs from mid September to mid April, with a break from early December to mid-January when everyone seems to be occupied elsewhere.

Outdoor Training
Outdoor training covers the whole range of Club activities
Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced Behaviours, Outdoor training takes place on Thursdays in the fields adjacent to the car park at Vogrie Country Park from mid-April to mid-September (depending on the opening times at Vogrie). We normally have training in all disciplines every week unless the weather is very bad indeed

Fun Agility
To help you and your dog learn the basics of agility for fun, good execrcise and learning to work with your dog as a team.

Demonstrations
The Club also provides demonstrations of basic training skills and agility in support of local community galas and other events
