School 4 Dogs

Welcome to the School 4 Dogs, where even the most disobedient dog can become a teacher's pet!

The programme is designed to teach you how to train your dog with lots of exciting demos and performances to watch and enjoy throughout the day. 

You can even join in with the have-a-go classes, and pick up some top tips from the professionals which you can use in your own everyday training programme. 

Don't miss Lucy Heath and Trip Hazard from Britain's Got Talent! Lucy will be running a workshop where you can bring your dog into the ring for a training lesson, as well as a fun session with Trip and a dance routine you won't want to miss. 

Rachael Grylls and her Guinness World Record holding Jack Russells - Jessica, Jacob and Jack - will demonstrate how to train your dog to use props, including skipping, skateboarding and getting in and out of a box. Rachael is also one of our freestyle dog dancing performers - come and see her perform twice a day. 

Plus, be sure to come and watch the Puppy School Masterclass where the trainers will demonstrate what it’s like joining a puppy training class, with lots of puppies to watch and enjoy.
