Basic Obedience Training Courses

All dog owners have a responsibility not only to their dog but also to society in general, some of which is enshrined in law. Part of this responsibility is to train your dog in basic obedience so that it can be under control at all times. This is where our most important role as a dog training club comes in.

We offer a Basic Obedience Training Course, which teaches owner and then dog the skills of elementary obedience so that the dog can happily take its place both in the home and society. The Course is open to new and experienced handlers, puppies and adult dogs, including rescues and any breed or crossbreed - in short - we welcome all.

The Basic Obedience Training Courses are seven weeks in duration and are run on a Thursday evening from 8.00pm - 8.40pm.

Ther classes take place at Brasted Village Hall, Brasted, Kent and are run regularly throughout the year. The course costs just £60.00 and places must be booked in advance as we try to limit numbers to 6 dogs and handlers per course. We consider this to be a manageable number, producing a more relaxed and safe atmosphere, which is conducive to learning for both the dog and owner. It also enables individual problems to be dealt with swiftly and efficiently.

The course aims to achieve several very important objectives. It teaches owners how to train their dogs:-


  • to walk to heel
  • to sit and down
  • to play in a controlled manner
  • to stay
  • to come when called
  • to fairly understand and learn the family rules!
  • to greet people and other dogs in a controlled manner
  • to help build a bond between dog and owner

The added advantage of the course is it helps to socialise your dog with both people and other dogs in a controlled environment. In addition to all this, the course will include advice on practical and essential legal aspects of dog ownership like collars and leads, ID discs, poop scoops, countryside code as well as canine health aspects.

We require that all dogs are fully vaccinated and that owners come armed with some form of ‘poop scoop’ in case of any accidents on their way to and from the training venue.
