WORKING PUPILS/Students and Work Placement Oportunities

We believe that; to learn as you work, is the most cost effective tuition available.

Most students never get the practical experience to the theory they learn at college and university, which is essential in all walks of life.

A piece of paper never can prove your ability, but a days work most definietly will.

I love my Job           Yes,  I do.

I love teaching, enthusiastic people the secrets of Sheepdog Training and Handling.
