Welcome to Oundle & District Dog Training Society

 Due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis all classes are suspended until after Easter when we will be reviewing the situation.  Visit our Facebook page and website for updates.  We hope everyone continues to enjoy their dogs and we will see you again soon.



 Classes run every Wednesday evening apart from a few weeks over Christmas/New Year. New members are always welcome. Classes are inside the arena until we get the lighter nights when we can be outside on the grass.  Please keep dogs off paddocks if we are indoors.


In the event of very bad weather, please check this website or our Facebook page 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. 

Find us on Facebook Oundle&District Dog Training Society.  When contacting the Society please DO NOT use Facebook messenger - use our email address or contact telephone number.

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.

The Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, 20th May, 7.30pm at Halefield Arena.  Nominations and items for the agenda need to be with the Hon. Secretary at least 14 days before AGM.
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 £10 single, joint or family.  Each class is £5.

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.
