      Hi John, we ask all handlers to complete an application form before starting a course. Our behaviourist will check through your details and assist with any advice before being assigned a class.

    Hi, I have a pug puppy and wanted to bring him to puppy training classes. I was wondering when the next puppy training intakes are?

    • Cheltenham Animal Shelter says:

      Hello Stacey – Our next puppy course is due to start at the end of July, however spaces are filling up quickly. We plan to have further courses throughout the Autumn months and so long as your dog is under 12 months you will be ok to join the GCDS Puppy classes.
