Over 20 years’ experience in operating a professional dog training centre has enabled us to pinpoint what we need to run well managed and effective courses for dog owners.
The first requirement is space! At Charlies we have 3 outdoor floodlit training paddocks for the dogs to work and then play in. When the weather is poor we have two heated indoor training areas, total area approaching 5,000 square feet! The training surface in the main hall is rubber matting, in the second indoor area it is astro turf, each giving excellent grip for indoor training and agility.
Toilets and a kitchen area are available, with indoor and outdoor seating for viewing of the training activities.
We have a full set of agility equipment with additional training equipment to help novice dogs learn the obstacles safely. In addition to this we have a range of equipment for the large and giant breeds thus enabling every one to enjoy agility no matter what size of dog you own. There are two sets of flyball equipment and this fast and enjoyable dog sport is included in the training courses from graduate onwards.
Please note we are able to offer flyball and agility classes 12 months of the year.
In general . . .
Being located on a 10 acre farm we have plenty of space to exercise dogs away from roads, on site there is a large pet store stocking a massive range of pet related products. There is also a tack shop for horse owners on site making Crow Hall Farm a real place for animal lovers.
With excellent road links to the A14 our training centre has over 300 dogs visiting weekly, many of these clients travelling from all over East Anglia to enjoy the range of activities at the centre.
