Cambridge Canine Education Group



Training Team ........

The success of  CCEG is due to a core team of senior Instructors and helpers who have been together for many years. All  Instructors have 'hands on' experience of owning and training their own dogs. most have attended  Courses on training, behaviour, instructing and problem solving. All have a special area of interest in training - so within the team is a vast amount of knowledge, which is readily shared with  trainee Instructors, class members and anyone seeking help and advice. This all works because of  great teamwork, dedication, enthusiasm and mutual respect for each others approaches to training and behaviour - and above all their love of dogs.

Not all the team will be currently taking a regular class or with us both days.
