Development and upgrading of facilities at the Patch Dog Training Centre to include a portacabin , associated siteworks, storage container and six dog pens.


Patch Dog Training started out as a hobby for Ronnie McAleese, but over the years it has become a thriving business offering a unique set of skills to local pet owners and show breeders. To enable the business to develop further and to offer its services to a wider range of customers it was necessary to further develop the existing facility to include provision for indoor training and meeting area along with toilet provision.


Funding from DRAP enabled Ronnie McAleese to expand his existing dog training business, through construction of an indoor training facility, erection of outdoor lighting, and the addition of durable storage containers and kennels for the dog care element of the business.
