On Track Dog Training School

Intro

The school was set up in 2000 in Smallbridge, Rochdale by its founder, Cath Phillips with the aim of bringing a reward-based method of training to local dog owners.  It was hoped that the training would be enjoyable for both owner and dog leading to a high standard of achievement.

From its humble beginnings the school has grown considerably and now has a purpose built training area. Classes include fiveBeginner Classes, four Intermediate Classes and two Advanced Classes. In addition there is a Sport Dog Group, a Working Trial Group and a Gundog Group. The school has listed status with the Kennel Club and runs the KC Good Citizen Award Scheme.

In 2005 Cath helped to develop the Greater Manchester Puppy Character Test and later the same year was asked to run the Puppy Walker Training Scheme which now runs from the On Track Training Ground and includes students from the school once they achieved a certain level.  

New members are always welcome. The school prides itself on creating a friendly environment for people to share the pleasures of dog ownership with other like-minded people. No matter how inexperienced owners are there will always be experienced people on hand to help with training.

NOTICE

HEAT WARNING

We are  advising people to give training a miss this week and we will catch up next week. The extreme heat is creating a real probem especially walking on pavements and trying to stop dogs from over heating. Stay cool and safe!

We no longer run the Behaviour Clinic. If your dog has a behaviour problem please Google Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors to find a qualified behaviourist to work with you.
 

The school is now up and running again. All dogs start with a 1-1 (£35) then go in to a class which is just £10 a session.

Give me a call on 07793019555 to book an initial appointment. If I am teaching leave your number for me to ring back
