We are a friendly non profit-making club, which is run by volunteers.
We are based at the Chattenden Community Centre and we meet there every Monday night.
We have been training dogs for over 58 years and have a real passion for helping you and your dog begin your journey in training no matter how old they are.
We are affiliated to the Kennel Club and follow the Good Citizenship Award Scheme, where there are four levels of courses from Puppy Foundation, to Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards. You can find out more information about the scheme here.
All of our training training is done on a group basis, and we have several classes for you and your dog that should cover what you want to achieve together.
Hopefully after looking around our website you will find all the information you need to begin you and your dogs journey of knowledge and growth.

Our classes cover all stages of you and your dogs development from Puppy to Adult and anything in-between. We don’t believe in the old saying of you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, with the right support any dog and owner can develop a rewarding and pleasurable union. When you decide to join you will always start either in the Puppy Class or the Intake Class and progress up the scale as you and your dog become more confident.
Below is a brief outline of all the classes we offer if you want to find out more in depth detail then just click the button below.
This is the start of your journey together to learn and develop as one to get a well mannered and obedient dog.
We will aid you in teaching your puppy to walk to heel, respond to their name via recall, do a basic retrieve, do the three basic control positions of sit, stand and dow and finally how to perform a short stay. Our class has the added benefit of helping your puppy to become socialised with other dogs and groups of people.
Your puppy must be vaccinated and microchipped.
Our Intake class is designed for handlers who have dogs that are not eligible to join the puppy class and would like to begin training them properly. Whatever your desired outcome is and what particular bad behaviour you would like to correct we will advise you in a talk a week before training begins. The emphasis in this class is the use of positive training methods and covers all the basics like heelwork, stays and recalls etc.. This is also a great opportunity to socialise your dog with others in a friendly environment especially if particularly nervous.
