Training Information

Check in time is fifteen (15) minutes prior to commencement of classes so all Members will be ready for classes on time.

We encourage members to get to the training grounds 20-30 minutes earlier to allow your dog time to socialise and work off their excitement prior to training allowing for a more relaxed dog and you!
