On Track Dog Training School

Puppy Diary - Raising a Working Dog 2014

On Saturday 4 January 2014 a small, 7 week-old puppy was purchased from the Greater Manchester Police kennels and brought home to On Track. He is a grandson of my female German Shepherd, Pepper and comes from a long line of working dogs. Bred for purpose it is hoped that he will compete in IPO which is a German dog sport.

As a fully trained sport dog he will compete both here and abroad testing his skills in Tracking, Obedience, and Protection Work. It is very similar to the work a police dog is trained to do.

Over the following weeks and months I shall compile a diary outlining the training that this young puppy is undergoing. The basic training will match the exercises puppies learn when they attend classes at On Track and will hopefully be of benefit to those of you who are also training young dogs.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

It is with a real heavy heart that Peter and I have made the decision to close the school completely including the one-to-ones. We spoke to the specialist nurse again yesterday afternoon and she agreed the time is probably right to isolate and stop all contact. Peter is at high risk having had chemo and also because of respiratory problems he is currently being treated for. It's all very scary and as expected the situation is getting worse daily. Stay safe everyone. We will post training articles and advice on the website and on our fb page.
