Welcome to Oundle & District Dog Training Society

No classes on 6th March due to Crufts’ Dog Show.


  Classes run every Wednesday evening apart from a few weeks over Christmas/New Year. New members are always welcome. 

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. Sheep graze on the paddocks during the winter months.  They are contained by electric fencing which is impossible to see in the dark so please do not let your dogs run on the paddocks.



Intake Class incorporating Kennel Club Puppy Foundation: 6.45pm until 7.30pm.

Bronze Class working towards Kennel Club Bronze Award: 6.45 until 7.30pm.

Silver/Gold Class working towards Kennel Club Silver/Gold Awards:7.30pm until 8.15pm.

Classes may be combined and instructors varied depending on class sizes.

Ringcraft: 7.30pm until 8.15pm
Having an Intake Class means we can accept new dogs at any time, you do not have to wait for a course start date. We now aim to cover the Kennel Puppy Foundation syllabus in the Intake Class.
Don't worry if you have missed a few sessions, we will always help you catch up!
Please do not bring bitches in season.
Please be considerate to other members and do not bring dogs showing signs of kennel cough or any other infectious disease.
Annual membership £10.  Training fees £5 per class including complementary hot drinks.  Subsequent class free. 
The annual Oundle Companion Dog Show was held at Halefield on Sunday, 22nd July 2018 by kind permission of the Lanni Family.  Despite worries that the weather might be too hot, it was actually cloudy and ideal for dogs.  We have made a donation of £500 to Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.  Many thanks to our judges, Committee, helpers and exhibitors for a great day.
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 area.

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.
