About Solway Dog Training Centre
Established in 1982, Solway Dog Training School was the first A.P.D.T. accredited & Kennel Club listed Dog Training facility, in West Cumbria. We were also the first in Cumbria to be accredited by The Animal Behaviour & Training Council.
Based in their own training centre at Hensingham near Whitehaven, they specialise in training in very small groups (just 4 to 6 dogs in every class) providing a personalised service, which caters for the individual needs of dog and owner.
Principal Instructor and owner of the centre, June Lambie, is a member of The Association of Pet Dog Trainers U.K., with a Distinction in Canine Psychology, and over 30 years practical experience in training dogs of all breeds.
Combining a wealth of knowledge and experience, with up to date, nationally recognised Dog Training and Behaviour qualifications. She is also a Kennel Club approved Dog Obedience Judge. June has a special interest in the rehabilitation of rescued dogs.
The Centre is approved, supported, and recommended by local veterinary practices, and June has provided a Behaviour Counselling service for:
Galemire Veterinary Hospital, Cleator Moor
Paragon Veterinary Group, Dalston
Ashlea Veterinary Centre, Carlisle
In addition, she accepts referrals from many other practices.
Over the years, June has trained literally hundreds of pet dogs, (and their owners!) but a wide range of ‘Dogs with Jobs’ have also featured on June’s list, these include:
Passive Drugs detection dogs for the police and prison service
Hearing dogs for the deaf
Search and Rescue dogs for Mountain Rescue teams
Assistance dogs for disabled people
and Pets as therapy (PAT) dogs
