The Isle of Wight Dog Training Society has been providing training for dog lovers all over the Island since the 1950's. We are a non-profit making club run by volunteers and our membership is islandwide. Membership and trainers interests include rally, pet & puppy obedience (getting your dog to sit and walk to heel etc.) through to competition standard obedience and agility for fun and competition.
We are affiliated to The Kennel Club and regularly run Bronze, Silver and Gold Kennel Club Good Citizen training, assessments and progress tests for members interested in achieving those levels of competence. To meet the individual needs and interests of our membership we train weekly out of several island venues. Whether it's agility or obedience you're interested in, go to the relevant page for details of venues and training.
All our trainers and committee members give their time, training and expertise on a voluntary basis and receive no remuneration. Your class and membership fees go towards the costs of venues, insurance (we are insured by the Kennel Club), equipment and special events for the membership.
Annual membership of the IW Dog Training Society will cost £6 single or £9 for joint membership which runs from January to December and £3 for junior membership - you will be required to fill in a membership form and pay the subscription fee at your first session.
We do not run a set course of sessions - training is on a week to week basis until you are ready to move from puppy to beginner classes and so on.
In the meantime if you require any further help, please do not hesitate to make contact.
We look forward to welcoming you to the IW Dog Training Society in due course.
