Levels of Training Available

The training I offer is not exhaustive but it will provide you with a solid foundation, a platform to continue your dogs education should you wish, however if you do not wish to, then it provides you that basic level that all dogs and owners should wish for.

There are 4 levels of training available, not all breeds can achieve Gold and Platinum, this can be discussed further.  If you are looking to purchase a new dog, then as part of my service I will source reputable breeders and find you a puppy which best suits your needs and wants.  If you have already purchased a pup and wish them to be trained then this can also be arranged.  All I will require is proof of vaccinations.
