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. The Co-ordinator will take him for a free run and play games with him. This familiarises the dog with the training centre before he returns at 16 – 18 months of age to begin early training.

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