Obedience Classes & Times

The Society currently runs classes on Wednesday evenings.  The classes will be no more than  5 dogs to and an instructor.  That means that there will be parallel classes.  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.

 

We are currently training outdoors in small groups due to Covid rules and all classes start at 6.30pm. 

New members welcome but you must prebook as we need to have your contact details.

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

Please park on the hard standing by the east doors. Training will be on the grass. 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.

In the event of very bad weather please check if classes are running. Showers or drizzle won't affect classes.
