  1. Scott

    Did the dogging course here and at first it was overwhelming when they showed the week’s schedule but they have it set up in a way that you learn everything at a comfortable pace and I came out of the course feeling very knowledgeable on dogging. Have also done working safely at heights and traffic management with them and they are very thorough and professional.
