How to Join

Become A Member

We provide a 6-Week Beginner Program as a foundation class for owners of older puppies and dogs who need basic training skills and socialisation. This is the gateway into the Club for most people and their dogs. You can read about our approach to socialisation by scrolling down to the seventh section of our website’s ABOUT page. Please note, we do not offer puppy classes for very young puppies.

We have a number of higher level Obedience classes running on Sunday mornings following the Beginners Program classes. Members with more experienced dogs – who have reliable recall – may also be interested in Agility (after completing the Agility Foundation Course) or Rally O classes. 

Some of our longstanding experienced members have also been known to provide guidance about other disciplines like Conformation, Scent Work, Tracking and Endurance. If you are very interested, it could be worth asking around. 



What you can expect if you are interested in training with us:

  • Excellent value classes; starting with the 6-Week Beginners Program.
  • Experienced instructors who keep skills current.
  • Modern ‘positive reinforcement’ training.
  • Greater understanding of dog behaviour and ‘language’.
  • Improved teamwork with your dog.

  • Follow-on classes once foundational skills are attained.
