Obedience Classes & Times

The Society currently runs five classes on Wednesday evenings, an Intake Class to help you and your dog to find your feet, the Foundation Class, the Bronze Class, the Silver Class and the Gold Class.  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.
