Due to COVID Restrictions there are currently no Obedience classes running


What is Obedience?

Obedience training ranges from very basic training, such as teaching a dog to reliably respond to basic commands such as “sit,” “down,” “come,” and “stay,” to highlevel competition to Kennel Club rules.


The KC Good Citizen Scheme is open to all dogs, pedigree or Crossbreed, whether Kennel Club registered or not. It provides a quality standard of training for dogs. 


Dog owners of any fitness level and/or disability can take part. The Scheme is non-competitive and emphasis is placed on the standard of achievement. There are four levels of courses from Puppy Foundation, to Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards. 


Can myself and my dog do it?

As long as your dog is non reactive and has a good recall, then, Yes! Young or old, large or small you and your dog can participate in this exciting, fun activity!

Obedience Venues and Classes.

We currently run training out of three Island venues.  Please contact the relevant trainers, detailed below, to book your place.  Unfortunately we cannot accommodate handlers and dogs who have not booked as space is limited in classes to best serve our membership. Please note that if you have a new puppy, you should start training and socialisation as soon as he/she is ready to mix with other dogs after vaccination.


Interested? You are invited to contact us to arrange a trial session.
