Started in 2013, as a small training class, Curabull Canine Training has gone from strength to strength. We now train up to 90 dogs a week, in puppy, intermediate, advanced pet obedience as well as Fun agility and Rally. We have experience of training a very wide range of dogs from Akitas to Austrailain Shepherds, from Cockerpoos to Chihuahuas , we are happy to train big or small, young or old, bold or shy. We have an excellent success rate with rescues and difficult dogs and enjoy the challenges these bring. The classes are based at Burnopfield and leadgate on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Agility is held on Monday nights (summer) or Saturday mornings (winter) at Houghall College. All classes are developed using the most up to date, scientifically proven techniques.
