Cambridge Canine Education Group



Training Team ........

The success of  CCEG was due to a core team of senior Instructors  who had been together for many years. All  Instructors had 'hands on' experience of owning and training their own dogs. most have attended  Courses on training, behaviour, instructing and problem solving. All had  a special area of interest in training  so within the team  was a vast amount of knowledge, which was readily shared with  trainee Instructors, class members and anyone seeking help and advice.
