K.C. Good Citizen….Gold Award. Congratulations to Jacqui Susans and her cockerpoo “LouLou”, for recently successfully completing the K.C. Good Citizen Gold award. Jacqui and “Loulou” have now completed all three stages of this prestigious award. It hasn’t always been easy but perseverance and commitment have brought them success. I find it very rewarding when a breed that is not necessarily thought of as a working breed achieves this level of success. Thanks also to Jacqui and “Loulou”s instructor, Gill Roberts, for her commitment to her client. My thanks and congratulations to all concerned…..Bob.

Very proud of my pooch today. He did great at training and was nice to get some good feedback from my trainer . Thanks for a good session Bob Haynes and for completely knackering him out 😂. #Proudmum #deltaonetraining #tiredout

K.C. Good Citizen Scheme …..Assessors Qualification. I am very pleased to be able to say that Anne Henwood, one of Delta One Canines associate trainers, was recently successful in becoming a Kennel Club accredited assessor for the Good Citizen Scheme at bronze level. Well done Anne! This now means that Delta One Canines have three assessors to ensure availability and impartiality to all clients entering the scheme. Assessment is available to all clients as part of our basic course. It is also available to anyone who has trained their dog either themselves or with a training organization that does not participate in the scheme. Contact for details….Bob.

Really good course. Me and my dog learned loads. It has been most beneficial for us both.

Just passed K.C. Good Citizen Bronze with "Zoot". I am so proud of him. There was a time when I thought I would never get anywhere with him. Thanks to Bob and Gill at Delta One Canines for their help and guidance. Silver award here I come!.

Two long standing clients of Delta One Canines, Ross and Sharron Allen, are shown at a recent training session with their two G.S.D.s "Tiberius" and "Dax". Although both dogs have achieved the Gold standard Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen award, they still attend training sessions periodically to keep both them and their dogs at a good level of training. As Ross often says, "Its not the dogs that need training, it's us!". They are pictured practising an advanced heel-work exercise.
I was honoured to once again be invited by the Midland Rottweiler Club to carry out the temperament assessments  at their Championship show held on Friday at the Kennel Club centre at Stoneleigh.

The idea behind these tests is to demonstrate that not only do the dogs look good but that their temperament is sound. Each dog that is voluntarily put forward for the assessment, is put through a series of practically based exercises to demonstrate that they are able to cope with what ever faces them in the real world. These exercises included passing a moving wheelbarrow loaded with empty cans, being left in isolation and being approached by an unusually dressed person acting in an unusual manner!

I have carried out these assessments a number of times and it is my opinion that the temperament of the dogs assessed is one to be proud of.

 The M.R.C. are to be congratulated for continuing to promote these assessments. I would like to see other breed societies pick up the gauntlet and stage similar tests at their shows.

My thanks to my friend and associate trainer Bob Brown for his invaluable help during the day.

Finally, thanks to the M.R.C. for their invitation to carry out this responsible task. It was, as always, a pleasure…..Bob.

A selection of photos of the various parts of the assessment are shown below.
 

Reviews received on the recent Level I course

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Learnt loads.  Barry Garnham

Was a really good and very interesting course - gave us plenty to think about and will hopefully make us more aware of our dogs (and other dogs) behaviour which in turn will make us better dog owners/handlers - thank you Delta One Canines …Sandra Haynes

 

Yes thanks all. Really enjoyed it and came away feeling inspired…..Craig Greenway

I would love to finish the course. I really enjoyed the first half, it was informative and fun, it was such a shame Star was so poorly that I couldn't make the second day….Rachel Devonish

 

Enjoyable and learnt loads. Thanks….Lynne Angus

 

I recently enrolled and participated in the Level I Award in Safe Dog Handling and Management – Mar 19 & 26.

The course content was very useful. Learnt a great deal about the bond/relationship between Dog/Handler, Dog Psychology/Body Language, Legislation and above all else what stood out and was really emphasised was that training is supposed to be fun. It certainly was!

The facilities were great. Decent location and field space. Plenty of tea and biscuits 'on tap'.

Formally informal classroom arrangement with lots of opportunity for group discussion and learning from others.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone thinking of or wishing to develop/hone their dog training skills to bring out the best in them and their dog……Alex Watt

The recent Level I award in dog handling safety and management was successfully completed with in excess of a dozen candidates achieving the qualification.

The selection of photos show candidates and their instructors taking part in obedience, searching, and K.C. Good citizen assessments. 


We had an excellent training session at Delta One Canines this afternoon. Never seen my dog so switched on! Did some really good positive work. Very informative and learned a lot. Looking forward to the next time!

Today me and my staffy Reggie passed the kennel club bronze award... all thanks to Gill! She has really taught me how to handle and lead Reggie with ease. Along with picking up some handy tips and tricks during each lesson. I couldn’t have done it without her. Already looking forward to start training for our silver award next week.

The next Responsible Dog Ownership Course which was  developed by Delta One Canines in association with West Midlands Police will be on 1 March 2018.

 

The objective of the course is to provide information to  owners so that they are more aware of why their dogs do certain things and what they as owners can do to ensure their dogs are managed correctly and do not cause harm or nuisance to others.

Content includes an overview of canine behaviour, legislation relating to dogs, and guidance on dog training and management to prevent owners falling foul of the law.

 

The next course will be delivered at the Delta One Canines venue in Old Church Rd. Coventry.

 

The cost per person is £25.00.

 

Any persons interested in attending are invited to contact me either via F.B. or phone 07966 535854 to book a place…..Bob.

 
I can seriously recommend Bob Haynes and his Delta One Canines for behavioural help. My Doberman will be forever grateful to him...as will I!

Another Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen success but with a slight difference. 

Sue Ellis recently successfully completed the Bronze level assessment with her two dogs "Milo" and "Alfie". To train two dogs at the same time is certainly a worthy achievement. To train them to this level is outstanding. Congratulations Sue.

 
I am very grateful to Bob of Delta One Canines for the help he gave me with "Milo" and "Alfie". They are now so much better behaved and I learnt so much. Being awarded Kennel Club certificates and rosettes was the icing on the cake.

Sue Ellis.
