can attend the puppy class once their vaccinations have been completed,
basic commands and good behaviour are taught. This is all done by play
with toys and treats, there is no force used. The puppies get the chance
to socialise with other people and dogs in a friendly safe atmosphere
making it a pleasant experience for them. Lack of early socialisation
can be the root cause of behaviour problems.
you have an older puppy who is a bit of a hooligan there is a class
just for you, also rescue dogs that need a bit more input. These groups
are kept to less than 6 dogs for more individual attention. No force
is needed in training, just positive reinforcement and motivation for
the dog to focus on you and want to do your bidding.

- Rally O is a new sport that is rapidly growing
in the UK. It is Obedience based, but not as formal as Obedience competitions,
ie heelwork is not with the dog wrapped tightly round you leg, but in
a relaxed position next to your leg. In competition you go to a station
where there is a card with details of the exercise to be performed.
After completion you move to the next station. General training classes
will be based on this rather than formal Obedience.
your dogs problems are or training needed, Canine College will most
certainly have a class for you and your dog. If you would feel more
comfortable with private sessions, these can be arranged at the training
ground or in your own home. Disabilities can be catered for. Just contact
Jay McCartan to discuss your needs.
