Last updated: 20 September 2016 - Puppy Graduates Honeydew
Established in 1999, McKaynine has become one of the premier training facilities in South Africa. From humble beginnings of two classes per week, we now offer over 30 classes per week from four different branches, including puppy socialising classes all the way to advanced obedience, tracking, agility and tricks! Our philosophy is simple - effective training that’s kind to dogs and people. Not only are the modern techniques of positive reinforcement scientifically proven to maximise learning, it’s super easy and results are quick to see. Handlers are treated with respect and empathy - we do our best to make your lessons fun and enjoyable. Take a look through the site to see what we offer. Scroll down and take at look at the latest news and specials too! Hope to see you soon!

CRATE SOURCES The most effective and humane way to toilet train your puppy is crate training. When properly introduced puppies LOVE their crates and it becomes their own special place which they seek out when they need to rest up - being a puppy is kinda tiring! We do not sell crates at our training school. Pop in to your vet or local pet supply store to see what they have in stock. You can also visit West Pack (Lifestyle), Builder’s Warehouse or try Pet Creations online. Tips: The crate should be just large enough for your pup to sleep - giant breeds benefit from a crate that can be partitioned. This way you can still use the crate when your pup is adult size. Drape a blanket over wire crates to mimic the “den” feel of the non-wire crates. Fabric crates are not suitable for chewers. Follow the training advice as per your McKaynine Owner’s Guide - please do not use the crate without completing the training.
