Where we are, what we do
Have you a bad dog, a problem dog? If you think you have a problem dog then stop and think - your dog has a problem person on the end of its lead - someone who is not sending the right signals to the dog, someone who is not telling the dog what is wanted.
Do you want to have a good dog? That would be one that doesn’t bark, doesn’t bite, doesn’t chase bicycles, doesn’t dig holes in the garden, doesn’t eat the furniture, doesn’t jump up, ... , doesn’t do anything that you or society regards as unacceptable. Do you really want a dog that doesn’t do anything? Why not learn to tell the dog what you do want rather than all the things that you don’t?
This is where dog training classes come in - to train the person to train the dog!
The City of Belfast Dog Training Club holds classes on Wednesday evenings in Braniel Community Centre, 69 Warren Grove, Braniel, Belfast, BT5 7PW. (Map)
The club offers dog training (obedience) classes for dogs (and their handlers), from puppies through to advanced competition dogs. Don’t wait until you have problems, bring your pup to the puppy class as soon as you can (after it has had its jabs.) If it’s no longer a pup, is over a year old, join the “bronze” class.
If you have any question about the puppy (under a year old) or bronze (older dogs) class it is likely that it has been asked by someone before and the answer is now available on this site - browse the links on the left.
If you cannot find the answer there, then email Bill (puppies) at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Alex (bronze) on 028 9059 1911 (after 6.00pm.)
