With so much packed in, our dog training days appeal to all dog lovers, and could start your child off on a lifetime hobby. Children enjoy different dog activities, including fun agility and pet dog training, and we are dedicated to keeping the cost of fun as low as possible.

Kids will leave with a bunch of new friends, new interests and bags of confidence, as we encourage all children to take on new challenges - Your child will be counting down the days until the next YKC event!
