19th January: 8-Week Dog Agility Class
Where: Thynne Lodge, Green Lane, Staines-Upon-Thames, TW18 3LX
If your new year’s resolution was to teach your dog some new tricks, this eight-week agility course could be a good place to start. Pooches will get a chance to use equipment, learn sequences and, hopefully, deepen the bond with their humans. Bear in mind, this is just outside the capital, so means some travel for Londoners.

20th January: Fetch & Follow’s Walk & Talk Series
Where: Victoria Park, London, E3 5TB
Head on down to east London’s Victoria Park, for a brisk new year’s walk and a chance to learn more about healthy eating for your dog.
