Obedience Classes & Times

The Society currently runs classes on Wednesday evenings.  Dogs in all classes work towards the Kennel Club Good Citizen Awards - Puppy Foundation, Bronze, Silver and Gold.  People and dogs progress through the classes at different rates so don't be despondent if someone who started at the same time as you seems to get on faster than you, they might have done it before or they might have an older or easier dog.  Also, don't worry if you have to miss the odd class, just keep practising at home and come back when you can.

If you are new to obedience training, you will find some helpful advice and preliminary exercises on our Starting Obedience Training page.

New members welcome but in an effort to be paperless and cashless we need your details as listed on the enrolment form before you arrive.  Please email details.  Card payment on the night.

The following enrolment form can still be used or you can also just email your details as listed on the form.

Please park on the hard standing by the east doors. Training inside the Arena in the winter and outside on the paddocks during the summer (weather permitting).

In the event of very bad winter weather please check if classes are running.
