We teach obedience to all levels of people, from those starting out with a new dog or puppy to advanced competitors.  See below for details of courses that we run.

PLEASE be realistic about your willingness and ability to working with your dog every day. Training your dog is an on-going process, not just 10 – 15mins when you think of it.

Good Citizen Dog Scheme

Good Citizen training takes place on Monday nights. Class is full at present. We can take note of your interest and contact you when a place becomes available

The Good Citizen dog scheme is a test procedure run by the Irish Kennel Club to help educate dog owners and and also to ensure that dogs are a respected part of the community. Completing this course will ensure your dog is well behaved in everyday situations such as walking on a lead, behaving calmly while you talk to another dog handler, lying down and staying on command and so on. You can read more about the scheme on the IKC website.

Please note: Applicants for this course must have completed the Beginners Obedience course. Below are some of the Dublin Dog Training dogs who were awarded the Good Citizen Award by the Irish Kennel Club.
