Unfortunately not. Our Navigation Courses throw a lot of information at you and we cannot expect you to be able to focus on the course material and your dog at the same time. The exception is a bespoke Navigation Course as this is tailored to your needs and wants but at a premium compared to our open events. You can view this option, along with all of our other activities, at the bottom of this page.
