About Us

Note:

  • Our 28th annual show was held on 1st July at the Canine Training Academy, 28 Moneybroom Road, Lisburn, BT28 2QP. Spooky!
  • Thanks to all participants - we hope you all enjoyed the event.
  • Congratulations to all club members in the pre-beginners and beginners classes on a successful day. Well done.
  • We are now closed for our Summer break and will re-open on Wednesday 2nd August 2017.

Have you a bad dog, a problem dog? If you think you have a problem dog at the end of your lead 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 communicating to the dog what is wanted.

This is where dog training classes come in - to help with the communication - to train the person to train the dog!

We hold classes on Wednesday evenings in Braniel Community Centre, Warren Grove, Belfast BT5 7JN. (There is a car park behind the centre, at the recycling point.)

Remember: pick up after your dog - bag it and bin it!

...

Puppy (7.30pm) and Bronze (8.15pm) classes are held on Wednesday evenings every week, as demanded by the rate of development of young dogs. All dogs are expected to start in one of these two classes.

The Silver and Gold classes (9.15pm) are for those pursuing the Kennel Club silver and gold Good Citizen awards respectively.

The Open training class is open to any member regardless of their main class. 

The first week is free, a "taster." Thereafter membership is necessary with an annual subscription fee (£15) and a weekly fee (£3) for classes attended. (Half-price junior and senior membership is available for those aged <16 or >65.)

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 definitely 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.
