Welcome to Oundle & District Dog Training Society



 We run classes every Wednesday evening apart from a few weeks over Christmas.  New members are always welcome.  


Seasonal reminder - when the weather is warm and dry we will be training outside on the grass.  Please do not allow children to run over paddocks or enter the stables.  Please drive slowly on the track, even if you are late for your class or in a hurry to get home.  


In the event of very bad weather, please check this website to make sure classes are running. 

Please do not park on grass, keep to the hard standing. This is a working equestrian facility so please keep dogs and children out of stables and fields.



Intake class: 6.45pm until 7.30pm.

Foundation Class: 7.00pm until 8.00pm

Bronze Class: 7.00pm until 8.00pm.

Silver Class: 7.00pm until 8.00pm

Gold Class:7.00pm until 8.00pm 

Between 8.00pm and 8.30pm classes will be extended or there will be extra activities
Ringcraft: 7.30pm until 8.30pm.
Having an Intake Class means we can accept new dogs at any time, you do not have to wait for a course start date. 
Don't worry if you have missed a few sessions over the holiday season, we will always help you catch up!
Please do not bring bitches in season.
The annual Oundle Companion Dog Show was held at Halefield on Sunday, 23rd July 2017 by kind permission of the Lanni family.  The charity chosen by our members was PETS AS THERAPY DOGS.  We were pleased to see three PAT Dog teams on the day.  Many thanks to our Committee, Society members, friends, judges and stewards for their hard work.  The judges had over 100 dogs making about 250 entries to be assessed.  Dogs also had the opportunity to 'Have-A-Go' at agility or be timed on the 'Fastest Recall Scurry' course. Most dogs went home with rosettes or prizes.  Donations of prizes, cakes for refreshments and money for rosettes were much appreciated.  We are proud to announce that we have donated £750 to the charity

The Oundle and District Dog Training Society was founded in 1962 to help the people of Oundle and the surrounding area to train their dogs. These days we welcome members from a wide radius.

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.
