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.

NOTICE

Update:

From 12 April I can have small groups for training. I have decided to have mini classes of just 5 dogs. The cost will be £10 a session. This should work well as I can give more time to individuals in a small class.

All dogs must start with a 1-1 but if you have had this and been given the okay to be in a class give me a ring on  01706 522539 to be booked in a class.

Beginner and Intermediate classes will start from Monday. The advance class will not resume just yet as this is a larger class on a Wednesday at 8.15pm.
