About us...

We are a community run club, registered with the Kennel Club. We offer many different classes, to suit all types of dogs- whether they are young, or older, or if they are well behaved, or have behavioural difficulties! We have a strong group of trainers who offer reward based training, tailored to each individual dog. We have the capacity to offer one on one training if necessary, which can be determined after your starting assessment- this can be beneficial for owners with anxiety around their dog, or for dogs who struggle in that group setting. 

As a club we strive on helping each dog be the best that they can be, and our priority is ensuring all training is fun, for both you and your dogs! What are you waiting for? Call us today to see what class would suit you most!

Don't take our word for it - here's what some of our members have to say:

'Great club to be a member of, FDTC is a friendly club, offering a range of training classes. I have been a member for many years, attending puppy socialisation, and obedience. The trainers were particularly helpful with my mature rescue dog. My current dog loves going to agility, and everyone welcomes her boisterous greeting, and i recieve positive and thoughtful advice on how to manage my exciteable collie! All of the members are supportive, and it is a lovely atmosphere in which to train. ' 

' The trainers are fabulous! A wealth of knowledge, help and top tips!They go above and beyond to answer all of your questions, and make training our dogs fun! '

'I can't wait for my Wednesday night agility- so much fun, and my mum is getting better with her instructions and generally remembers the course!'.
