In February 2017, Dogs Trust is launching Dog School Nottinghamshire to offer training classes and lessons to local pet owners. The school is part of a significant initiative aimed at preventing problem behaviours and supporting dog owners, to help keep more dogs in their homes. There are currently 22 successful schools across the country.
The Nottingham team, led by Head Coach Chelsea Martin, provides a fun, stimulating and informative environment for dogs to learn basic obedience and household manners, whilst working to identify and prevent unwanted behaviours.
Dog School classes are unique in that they combine training skills with exercises to prepare your dog for everyday life. Classes are offered for puppies, rescue dogs and adult dogs. Each class session has two trainers present and a maximum of six dogs in attendance, so owners will receive lots of individual help and support.
The nearest Dog School to Ruddington will be in West Bridgford. Classes will alternate between the Poppy and Pint pub and St. Saviour’s Church, beginning on Saturday 10th February and running from 10am to 11am. The classes will then be ongoing, with consecutive sets of five week courses.
