Swinton Dog Training - Dog trainer in Salford, Manchester
Swinton Dog Training Ltd has been training dogs and their owners since 1991. Karen was one of the first dog trainers in the North West to join the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme with Swinton Dog Training. Karen’s achievements were acknowledged by the Manchester Evening News paper in 2001 when her ‘Magnificent Seven’ passed the Gold award with flying colours.
Swinton Dog Training offer a number of different weekly obedience classes.
Beginner Training Classes are on Monday and Thursday evenings in Swinton town centre. Classes are held outside to ensure that the dogs don’t become stressed by training in an overcrowded room and to ensure owners have better control of their dogs during exercise periods. We train ‘rain or shine’ with the exception of Bank Holidays.
Intermediate Training Classes are held at the training area on a Thursday evening.
Puppy Socialisation Classes are held indoors on a Wednesday evening for puppies aged between 10 and 14/15 weeks.
All newcomers to Swinton Dog Training are asked to complete a 6 week Beginner / Puppy course which is pre-registered. To sign up for this course, please use the printable registration form found on our website or contact Karen for one to be emailed or posted.
The Beginner/Puppy Course
Week 1 - Owners leave their dogs at home for a 1 hour informative talk on dog behaviour explaining how a dog learns its position within the household and the role of the 'pack'. (The Behavioural talk is also held outdoors)
Week 2 to 6 – 5 weeks of basic obedience training with your dog.
Our intermediate class is available to any dog and owner that have completed our beginner course. This 6 week course is a continuation of the exercises learnt in the beginner class.
Our ongoing classes include further advance training and off lead work intermingled with some fun exercises to ensure you and your dog enjoy training together.
Trainers are available at the end of each class for one-2-one help and assistance.
Also note that the training club is not an ideal place for children, but if there is a child wishing to work their own dog they must be physically capable of being able to control it.
Our puppy socialisation classes run every Wednesday evening from Fletcher Hall, Vicarage Road, Swinton, M27 0WA. These classes are available to puppies between 10 and 14/15 week old and once the puppy has received it’s first injection.
The socialisation classes allow puppies to meet similar aged pups in a controlled environment before their critical socialisation period (17wks). The puppies are introduced to basic training while their owners are given help and advice to ensure their dogs grow into well balanced and sociable dogs. Classes also include handling, socialisation skills, house training and health and diet.
