All our training classes are held in our training centre at Road Green Farm in Hempnall which is 10 miles from Norwich. We have a soft flooring which is ideal for all dog training. We have plenty of off road parking, a seating area, kitchen facilities and a toilet.
Our training methods are gentle yet very effective. Dogs require clear and consistent commands. We offer a variety of training sessions which will help to increase the bond that you and your family have with your dog. Clicker training is used in all our training. It is an excellent reinforcer of praise and is useful when there is more than one of you training your dog as the message is always consistent.
We only use kind and gentle training techniques and do not allow the use of choke (check) chains, half choke (check) collars, slip leads or slip collars in any of our classes or at any events we hold or attend. We offer alternative solutions to help you to control your dog.
