Our Venue


Our group classes are based at Woodrush Rugby Club, with access to the grounds and the main clubhouse.

The clubhouse is fully heated and set out specifically for our classes. The floor is a ‘non-slip’ tile type and the room is secure with a double entrance (porch). We would appreciate it if visitors can ensure the outside door is closed before opening the inner door, so we can prevent any unscheduled off lead excursions for our dogs, and vice-versa when leaving. The floor is quite cold and hard so please feel free to bring along a blanket or bedding for your dog to rest on.

We have the usual male and female toilet facilities plus access and toilet facilities for wheelchair users. If you have anyone who has specific access requirements or special assistance, please contact us so we can offer you the best support.

We have access to fresh water for you and your dogs, and would request that you bring along your dog’s own drinking bowl for each class, as your dog will get thirsty throughout class.

We are happy for you to exercise and toilet your dogs within the club grounds, but please keep off the marked pitches and it is essential that all waste is collected and disposed of appropriately in the bins provided. If there are any areas that require additional cleaning please mark the location and let the puppy school team know, so that it can be cleaned appropriately.

NOTE – The grounds are not lit so you will need to bring a good torch and appropriate footwear for walking across the grassed areas of our grounds.

There is plenty of parking at the rear of the club, with the main club entrance located at the pitch side of the building, at the end nearest the road.

Please do not park on the grass or verges as they do become very soft and muddy in the wet weather.


Puppy School Hollywood is based out of Woodrush Rugby Club on Icknield Steet, South Birmingham. Icknield Street runs north at the point of Redhill Road (from the west / Longbridge direction) meets Clewshaw Lane (from the East / Wythall direction).

Important – If using SAT NAV do not use the postcode from Google etc. as this is incorrect. The correct postcode is B38 0EL.

From Wythall direction, take Middle lane northbound to its junction with Clewshaw lane and turn Left into Clewshaw lane. Follow the road for 1 mile, where the road curves sharply to the right, you will see the ‘Peacock Pub’ on the left. You need to take the next right turn into Icknield Steet (approx 200yds). The entrance to Woodrush Rugby Club is 100yds up Iccknield Street on the right-hand side.

From Longbridge direction, proceed to the A441, where it intersects with the Redhill Road, at the ‘Man on The Moon Pub’. Take Redhill road travelling east towards Wythall for 1.7 miles. And turn left onto Icknield Street. This is a very sharp left hand turn off Redhill Road and can easily be missed. If you do pass this road simply take the next right hand turn into Icknield Street (South) and turn around in the Peacock Pub car park. Retrace the last 200yds and turn right into Icknield Street (North). The entrance to Woodrush Rugby Club is 100 yards up Icknield Street on the right-hand side.
