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 a full time behaviourist. 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 - 25th March 2021
Due to the latest National Lockdown, SDDTS has to once again close it's doors to training classes for agility, puppies and adult / adolescence classes until further notice. We are awaiting guidance from the CFSG as to when we can restart. We are hoping to be able to restart agility classes shortly after Easter but still no dates for us to be able to restart indoor classes.
This is a five week course covering all aspects of puppy development and training and based on the most up to date research / training into puppy development. For pups no more than 20 weeks at the start of the course.
We offer a 7 week basic training course which is suitable for adults and adolescent dogs from the age of about 5 months
The club offers agility training at all levels, from beginner to advanced and all breeds – small, medium and large dogs. We offer occasional Foundation Courses when space allows.
