Dog Training for All Breeds of Dog

Dog Obedience Training - for All Breeds

The Bury and District German Shepherd Dog Club holds its weekly obedience training sessions at Philips Park, Park Lane, off Higher Lane, Whitefield, Manchester M45 7GH every Sunday morning. We meet in the car park (near the old night club) and dog training starts about 9:15am. A lot of the members meet in the park to walk their dogs before training, this is good for 2 reasons:-

  1. It runs off some of their excess energy which helps the dogs concentrate better during training.
  2. It gives the dogs and owners a chance to socialize.

Training is £4 per dog per training session, we do not charge for weeks that you do not attend and have a tea or coffee after school for only 30p.

We train every Sunday throughout the year with the exception of all Bank Holidays.

What we do in Dog Obedience Training

Dogs, like people, are individuals with their own personalities, so it takes time, patience and effort to train and understand your dog and the rewards are seen in the amount of work that you put in to obedience training. Although the club provides a weekly dog training session it is important that training is continued at home between training sessions, training is not a quick fix, like a dog, it is a life long commitment. It is amazing the difference you will see if you do just 10 minutes obedience training a day, it does not have to be hard work and can be done whilst at home or whilst walking your dog, combining walking your dog and training is both fun and rewarding, it can be done as a game ie: get your dog to wait on top of a hill then walk a distance away, recall your dog and see how fast your dog comes to you, the running down the hill is a good game as they can really get some speed up.... great for larger breeds of dog.

We train our dogs with the concept that it should be fun for both dog and owner, this means that you will feel comfortable to ask questions that will help you and your dog and our obedience trainers are more than happy to answer questions on a one to one basis after school when we all get together for a cup of tea or coffee, this is also a good time to get support from other members, many of whom have been attending many years and there will always be another member who has encountered the same problems with training that you will and they are more than prepared to offer you some help, support and advice.
