Dog Training Classes

Classes will be held at the shelter’s location and be coordinated by our Behaviourist, Rosie Taylor-Trigg, and her team. Rosie has been working with dogs for over 8 years, in both a rescue and private kennel environment, building on her knowledge through continued learning and academic achievement.

    I’m disappointed to see that the new classes are only for puppies. I would have hoped that as a rescue organisation you would have offered classes for older dogs that perhaps hadn’t had any prior training. Do you think you will be offering any basic training classes for adult dogs in the near future? I would be very interested if you are.

  2. Mary says:

    Hello, just wondering if you will be doing any classes for adult dogs? I get my rescue dog from Thailand at the end of April so looking for somewhere in Cheltenham I can take him to classes, any help would be great. Thanks Mary

    To whom it may concern,

    I’m looking for dog training, either group classes or one-to-one sessions for my 1 year old mini schnauzer who has a fear of children. I was wondering if you offer classes for that aged dog or if not, if you could recommend anybody.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hello, I’m just enquiring about the puppy foundation course and when I’d be able to enrol my 14 week old French bulldog. And if the 6 weeks are consecutive or if I could attend every other week for example as I work a few Saturdays. Kind regards, Jordan

  5. Lu Leach says:

    Can the money be paid weekly or does it have to be paid in one go for the puppy class as we are on benefit and £60 is a lot to pay in one go

    Hi, I have an 11 month old pedigree Cocker spaniel dog called Ollie! He’s extremely clever, full of energy and very attentive – I’m looking at my doing agility classes with him and was wondering what you have to offer for this? Warmest regards Lucy Webb and Ollie Webb

  7. Isabelle Kent says:

    Good morning, we recently re-homed one of your Romanian street dogs (Kruger) and are looking for dog training classes we could attend with him. We think he is somewhere around 2 years old, so too old for your puppy classes, but would appreciate it if you know of any local classes we might be able to contact?

  8. Samantha Harrison says:

    Re puppy foundation courses do they start on particular dates or can you just turn up ?
