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)
Which class should you join?
Suppose someone asks “how old is your dog?” If you give the age in weeks ( “it is 16 weeks” ) then the puppy class is the one for you. However, if you’ve stopped counting weeks and started giving the age in months ( “it is 9 months”) then the bronze class may be more suitable. Over a year old, the bronze class is the one.
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 young pup, join the “bronze” class.
