Welcome to the Sevenoaks & District Dog Training Society

We have been training dogs since 1963 and offer fun, positive reward based training for puppies, adult dogs as well as rescue dogs. We welcome all breeds and ages of dogs and owners! We are based in Sevenoaks, Kent and our training classes include puppy lifeskills courses, basic obedience training and agility training.

We also operate the Association of Pet Dog Trainers Companion Dog Awards for those people who have come through our Basic Training Courses.

All of our instructing team have many years experience in kind, fair and effective dog training. One is a full member of the  Association of Pet Dog Trainers and one is a fully qualified behaviourist and member of ICAN. So we are well places to help and advise on all aspects of modern science based dog training.

Come along and join us!

Covid 19 Update - 26th May 2020

There is no new information from the Canine and Feline Sector Group (CFSG) at the moment regarding changes to when trainers are permitted to resume classes. The latest statement, dated 14th May, said that we are not allowed to run classes as they require people to gather and would be unable to maintain social distance. In any case, currently our indoor and outdoor venues are not open for hiring so we are waiting for further news. We will be reassessing this situation on a weekly basis now and will be guided by the CFSG and our venues. Pop back on a regular basis for updates - STAY SAFE - from the SDDTS Team
