Puppies need the best start in life, where they can learn in small groups and shine as they master their basic tasks.
At Worcester Dogs we offer Puppy Pre-School Classes for the very youngest puppies, from 9 weeks and after their first vaccination, in order to give the the best socialisation in a safe and supervised environment.
Puppy classes are for puppies from 12 weeks and are held either outdoors at our training field or indoors at Norton Parish Hall or Kempsey Community Centre.

Our dog training Masterclasses in Worcester provide you with the opportunity to focus on these areas in small class sizes with individual attention from the trainers who have extensive knowledge of these issues.

Scent Detection Training
A dog has around 300 olfactory receptors which, according to Medical Detection Dogs, means they can smell the equivalent of a teaspoon of sugar in TWO Olympic size swimming pools. By harnessing this ability it will help to give your dog better focus and concentration as well as build a bond between you and work as a team.
Worcester Dogs runs Introduction Workshops, Scent Searches in a variety of venues and locations, Scent Skills Workshops as well as hosting trials for the National Nosework Association.
