Join Our Club

Come and learn with your best friend! We use modern, kind and fair, reward-based training approaches in a fun and friendly atmosphere. We will help you build on that all-important bond of trust you have with your dog, and we aim to make sure that your dog is happy and able to learn in a relaxing and non-threatening environment.
All our instructors are qualified, with many years of experience with dogs of all shapes and sizes. Whatever your problem, our experienced instructors will have seen it all before, and we will be able to offer our help!

How it works

  • Come and watch some classes before committing yourself. Please come without your dog. We train on Thursday nights at the Quinborne Centre, Ridgacre Road, Quinton, Birmingham B32 2TW.
  • Our courses are oversubscribed, so we ask you to reserve your place by paying in advance.
  • Fees are refundable if you are unable to start the course, at our discretion.
  • You can pay in cash, by cheque, Bacs or card.
  • Please bring your dog’s vaccination certificate with you on your first visit.
For more details of what classes are available, click on 'Our Courses'. For details of how we train, click on 'Our Training Approach'.

Remember to bring to every class:

  • Treats (small, soft ones are best) and/or a favourite toy
  • Poo bags
  • A mat or blanket for your dog to lie on
  • Kong or similar toy, ready stuffed with paste or soft cheese
  • Your dog! He or she needs to wear an ordinary flat collar with a disc bearing your name and your address.

Large bowls of water are provided but it is always best to bring your own water and bowl from home for your dog. Unfortunately, there are no refreshment facilities for humans at present!

Handlers are asked to wear suitable casual clothing, eg low-heeled shoes or trainers. If your dog is unwell (vomiting, diarrhoea, coughing), or you have a bitch in season, please stay away for the safety and comfort of others.

We train on Thursday evenings in Bennett Hall, Quinborne Community Centre, Ridgacre Road, Quinton  Birmingham, West Midlands B32 2TW.
