This is suitable for all ages; mainly dogs over  5.5 months of age. Even if your dog has not attended training before they can start at this level. It is suitable for all ages; as long as the dog is social with other dogs. See page 1-2 of this training services page.

Clever Dog training (stage 2) with two different levels. The main level is more advanced training to build on the basics, and training commands.. But in Oakford we also run a level which covers an intro to agility, nose work and tricks. If courses are advertised see page 2-3 of this training services page. or email us.
