Seminars and Workshops
Occasionally we will run educational seminars and hands-on workshops on training or other pet-related subjects. Please see the Workshops page for the full list.
The Dog Classroom also offers Workplace Seminars for those who work in professions where they may come into contact with dogs (delivery service, meter readers, etc.). Please see below for more information.
