Welcome to Oundle & District Dog Training Society
Despite emerging from Lockdown 2 we will be in Tier 2 so training classes are suspended until January. We apologise for disappointment and hope to see you in 2021.
We hope to see you again soon when training will be in small groups as before. Full Covid security measures will be in place with card payments ONLY on the night. New members need to contact us before attending classes. Anyone paying membership since September will not need to renew in January.
Keep enjoying your dogs and be extra careful that they are not out of sight. Due to the high demand for dogs many are being stolen for breeding or selling on.
Times -please note times have changed again
Class 1. For new dogs and puppies. Covering Kennel Club Puppy Foundation. 6.45 - 7.30pm.
Class 2. Intermediate class for dogs which have reached a satisfactory standard in Class 1. 7.00 - 7.45pm
Class 3. For more experienced dogs. 7.00 - 7.45pm
New members welcome but you must prebook as we need to have your contact details.
Please park on the hard standing by the east doors and enter there. Only one person per dog and no spectators. Please bring everything you need for your class in pockets, small backpack, bum bag or cross body bag. No sharing of equipment or treats. Hand sanitizer available but best to have your own.
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.

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.
