Puppy Training Classes
The Practice provides puppy training classes on a Wednesday evening. The classes take place at the Surgery from 7 – 8 pm and are run by Terri Corbett a local dog trainer, together with members of the practice.
Terri is currently on Maternity Leave, but will be starting the classes again in January 2020.
There are up to 10 dogs to each course – the course consists of four weekly classes covering dog behaviour and training, socialisation, legal aspects of dog ownership and basic health and grooming, followed by tea and coffee. The course is primarily for puppies but is open to anyone interested even if the dog is slightly older. The classes are available on a first come, first served basis. Places must be pre-booked in advance by calling in or telephoning the Practice.
The fee for the 4 week course will be £30.00 (£7.50 per class). The full course fee of £30.00 will be payable at the time of booking!
