    My puppy's 16 weeks old, well over his last jabs and micro chipped so now I'm looking to take him to some sort of training / socialisation classes, does anyone know how I can find one near me please?

    I'm in Sittingbourne in Kent so as close to home as possible.

    Thank you

    There is a club in Kemsley on Thursday nights although I found it very 'pack leadery' and only went once.

    If you wouldnt mind coming over to Gillingham there are several here. There is Gefion dog training at the parochial hall in Gillingham which is where I go on Wednesday's, They do Good Citizen Scheme. Puppy starts at 6.15 I believe.£50 for 10 1/2 hour sessions

    Classes

    You could jump on and off the motorway and go to Borstal Barkers (by comet in borstal you know where horsted pets at home is) He runs classes on Tuesday and Thursday night. £5 for the hour, the dogs arent working for an hour, some of it is spent talking and discussing matters of the dog. He is fantastic I cannot speak more highly of Ken. I wish Id found him sooner. He does Good Citizen Tests too.

    Pennyh on here does her own socialisation and training classes in Gillingham on Wednesday nights in brompton gillingham and she is a lovely lady.

    There is also these people if you would prefer to train in the daytime rather than evening. they train at riverside Gillingham
    I spoke to them re agility and they seemed really nice but I didnt end up doing agility with them as the times always clashed with shows :001_smile:
