For Puppies and Novice dogs, we use the secure high fenced field and indoor arena at Pawz Let Loose, which is handily situated directly opposite our training ground. From Puppy to Advanced, we have facilities to meet all your training needs.

“I would highly recommended Mark. As a first time dog owner he gave me the confidence to allow my puppy to walk off lead and worked with me with commands and techniques. The 1-2-1 was so good, I sent my husband the next week.”

The learning experience

To ensure you get the most out of training, we limit all group classes to 8 dogs.

Small groups enable us to spend more time with handlers and dogs, helping perfect techniques that quicken the learning process.

Please do not attend sessions if you have Coronavirus symptoms.  We ask all handlers to hand sanitise before/after sessions and bring all their own equipment including dummies. Where possible, please maintain social distancing.

    I have been lucky enough to be training with Mark at Volucris for the last few months with Willow (WCS) who is 9 months old. Mark always trains with positive reinforcement for me and Willow🤣 and we have both come along so much!! The sessions are  always well organised and nothing seems too much trouble “
