Dachshund loose lead walking

Dog owning household in Belfast will soon be able to access more dog training support Dogs Trust rolls out more classes in the region.

The newly established team is hoping even more four-legged pupils and their owners can benefit from their classes at Duncairn Community Centre.

The Dogs Trust Dog School Belfast team are holding classes on Mondays and Wednesdays; hoping to prove you can teach young and old dogs new tricks.

Head coach Sascha Cox says, “Pet dogs don’t need to be obedience champions, but we know most owners would love it if their dog could sit when asked, walk calmly on a loose lead, come back when called and settle down when they stop to chat to their neighbour or pop to a cafe. The team are really excited to get out into the community and help dog owners and their pets through our rewards-based training methods.

“We want to help owners reward their dogs for making the right choices during their training; that may be giving them a tasty treat, giving them lots of praise, or playing their favourite game. If a dog is rewarded for the desired behaviour, they are more likely to repeat it.”

Classes will be held at 4pm, 6pm, 7pm and 8pm on Mondays and 6pm and 7pm on Wednesdays. Find out more at www.dogstrustdogschool.org.uk or contact the team on 07990 379696 / 0289590 2935 or email belfastdogschool@dogstrust.org.uk.
