At roughly 12 months of age our young dogs come into the Banbury Training Centre for a kennel break.

They stay for 5 – 7 days and the Puppy Co-ordinator spends time with the dog getting to know him, taking him for a free run, and playing games with him to familiarise him with the training centre before he returns at 16 – 18 months of age to begin training.

The kennel staff play a big part in each dog’s kennel break, taking time to groom them, provide them with different toys and mix them with fellow dogs.
