The home of Dog Behaviour & Training for Formby, Southport, Liverpool and surrounding areas

Welcome to West Lancs Canine Centre (est 1989)

Thank you all for your continued patience during the current times. WLCC promised our clients an update on 1st June and we will not disappoint.
After careful consideration we have decided to gradually introduce services over the next few weeks. Our main concern being the nature of advice being issued…..we did not want to return only to close again. Although we have always been able to adhere to social distance measures, we have had to consider what we perceive as appropriate and responsible.
Here is our time scale (during the initial couple of weeks we will not be covering our office regularly therefore please email or message us via facebook) *please note we encourage all of our clients to bring their own hand sanitiser and / or enforce other preferential methods of enforcing good hygiene and preventative measures*.
WLCC will ensure that frequented areas are sterilised regularly.
W/C 15th June: 1-2-1 training and behavioural sessions will be available at the centre (home visits are not included).
W/C 29th June: Small workshops will be offered to clients with no more than 4 x people in attendance at any one time.
W/C 6th July: Group training classes will be available on a pre booked basis for existing clients (Tuesday & Saturday only), with a limit per class of 6 x people. More classes will be offered via Facebook and our website should demand increase.
W/C 6th July: New Clients Group Training: We will be offering new clients set duration courses with no more that 6 x people per course. Each course will consist of 10 x lessons with a start and end date in mind.
*Please note we have chosen to separate new clients from existing clients in order to limit the lesson sizes*
Day Training: this service will discontinue until September 2020. Individual day training sessions will be available for specific clients with existing needs or clients that require this service due to our recommendations
