Guest Trainers

We have a top flight obedience trainer, Michelle Newman, who takes a regular guest night training class for competitive obedience each month. This class is available at no extra cost to club members and will be made available to non-club members on application.

Michelle Newman needs no introduction to the Obedience competition world having appeared at Crufts in the Obedience Championships many times and has also won the Dog CC, the very pinnacle of achievement. With Collies, Standard Poodle, Turveren, and a German Shepherd all being taken to the highest level her experience as a trainer is second to none. Michelle judged the KC Obreedience class at Crufts this year and is also a Championship judge.

Resident Obedience Trainer – Karen Lacey has been a member of the club for many years and now specialises in the obedience arm of the club. She has competed at the highest level with a Border Collie.

Our obedience trainers all work to the same formula and will discuss individual progress of the class members to ensure continuity of tuition.
