We don't align our obedience training terms with the school terms and there are only three terms this year so that we can have a break through the heart of winter over  mid-July through to mid-September when it is cold and miserable and not a good time for any effective outside training. But that doesn't mean that you don't keep up with your training at home and remember your instructors are only a phone call or email away if you need help. The first night of each term is always a registration night from 6pm to 7pm in which you come along with your dog, your term fees, dog registration and vet certificate and we get you sorted and into your classes, you meet your instructors and are familiarised with what will be going on through the rest of the term then training proper starts the following week of each term. A mid term display of the other classes that we offer at the Club will give you a goal to work to so that you will have an idea of what you would like to do once you have graduated from puppy and basic classes.
