welcome to paws dog training

PAWS is a friendly dog training club, teaching basic life skills for family dogs.  We have Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Listed Status and are therefore permitted to host Good Citizen training and subsequent testing.  Puppy Classes are held on Tuesday evenings in Wannock Village Hall, Jevington Road, Wannock and follow on classes are on Monday evenings in Willingdon Community School, Broad Road.  We encourage handlers of all ages; children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.  Our training methods are based on positive reinforcement using praise titbits and toys as rewards. 

April 2020

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues our dog training remains suspended to help everyone by reducing the chance of spreading the virus, in line with government aims.  This means that the current course will not finish until we can resume training again and therefore the next course will be delayed.  At this time, we are unable to say how long the delay will be, but we will update this web site as soon as we know when the next course will be able to start.  Please feel free to contact us any time for an update.

We will update this web site with more information as it becomes available.
