Our group training classes are currently held at our base within the grounds of The Whitehouse Farm Centre in Stannington. We offer private training at home or at a location of your choice within a 15 mile radius of NE61 6AW (Morpeth)
We have an enclosed, astro-turf arena indoor which offers the ability to work in a controlled situation during early training.
At Central Bark we also train outdoors (weather permitting) in our paddock, woodland area and also during the summer months on the adjoining farmland.
This allows exposure to sights, smells and real life distractions that your dog will face on a daily basis.
Our classes are limited to 7 students (dogs) per class wherever possible. Whist we encourage family member to come along and watch if the weather is bad and we are inside we allow the handler only. It is important that your dog receives the same training from each person within the household and we are happy to email tips and homework to allow everyone to be involved.
