GOT A NEW GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG OR PUPPY?
Come along on a Sunday morning to Malvern Branch and see how useful and fun training can be. Dogs are never too young (or old) to start training. Puppies from 8 weeks old can attend our Puppy Classes.
We have classes for all abilities as you train your dog or puppy.
We can also help you prepare for trials and shows. Most importantly, you can enjoy being out with your dog with lots of other like minded dog lovers.
During the year (Feb-Nov) Malvern Branch is open for training every Sunday - rain, hail or shine unless advised otherwise (check the Events calendar). Our puppy classes (to 6 mths) run all year round
