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.
The Medway Dog Training Club
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.
The club was formed in March 1959. Meetings were held fortnightly in a garden in Strood, classes were 2/6d per dog.
The club moved to the Casino Rooms, Rochester in December 1969. It had the hall from 7.00-10.00pm every Thursday evening. So the Ringcraft class had the centre of the hall all night. Rent was 30/- per hour.
The club moved again to a much bigger hall at the end of 1973. This was the Aurora Hotel, Brompton Road, Gillingham. The rent increased in September 1975 to £7.56 per evening.
January 2006 saw the club on the move again to Chattenden Community Hall, Chattenden, still on Monday evenings, but two halls are available, allowing the puppies and more difficult dogs to be in the smaller hall and three classes being held in the larger hall.
