Please go through Elton and turn right onto A606, turning right to Fotheringhay at the Warmington/Fotheringhay roundabout. From there follow directions under the 'venue' section of this website.

The Society is Kennel Club Registered and is a voluntary organisation run by experienced dog trainers and owners. The Society promotes responsible dog ownership and follows the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme. Ringcraft classes are also available to help people to train their dogs for the show ring.
We are very fortunate to be able to train in an indoor arena at Halefield Farm, Woodnewton, near Oundle, Peterborough, PE8 5EG. The surface is excellent for dogs and there are grassed areas for outside summer training. Members and visitors are reminded that the stables and fields are out of bounds.
New dogs and puppies are welcome to attend the Intake Obedience Class at 6.45pm or Ringcraft at 7.30pm on Wednesdays. We are able to offer extra individual help to some people and dogs with a view to integrating them into the approprate class.
All dogs must be fully vaccinated with conventional vaccines and certificates must be produced on joining or renewing subscriptions.
Annual Membership costs £5 single, £6 joint or £7 family and each class is £4. In addition there is a one off joining fee of £2 for new members.
>On this website you will find full details of the venue location and classes available. Information about the Society starts with the history and gives our aims and objectives and rules. There is also some general advice on rearing and caring for dogs.
The Society welcomes new members at any time, we do not have course start and finish dates so owners can bring puppies or dogs once they are fully vaccinated or at any time thereafter. We hope you will be able to join us to train your dog.
