John Rowland and Meeka


John Rowland is the main trainer of the Dog Obedience classes at the club.

We also have Mrs Julie Otley, Mrs Carolyn Oldham and Mrs Julie Reid  and Steve Armitage who help out with classes.

All have experience of Open Obedience Competitions and are very enthusiastic about dogs and training.

We welcome all breeds of dog, whether you want to enter competitions or just have a well-behaved companion.

All our training is based on a reward system for the dogs through praise, treats or a mixture of the both.


We aim to keep our training at a level which suits the pace of both the dog and the handler.

Our main aim is to provide fun and enjoyment for both you and your dog.

If you’d like to know more, why not drop in for a chat and a cup of tea to discuss what you would like to achieve with your dog.

We look forward to meeting you in the near future.
