The club offers obedience training which sees dogs working towards each stage of the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme in the following classes:

  • Puppy Foundation
  • Bronze Certificate
  • Silver Certificate
  • Gold Certificate

Classes are fun and friendly and see dogs working from the very basics of obedience training, all the way up to much more advanced obedience at gold standard. These classes are held in the Barnard Castle Rugby Club hall on birch road. Puppy classes are Monday evenings at 18:30.

Bronze classes are held Monday evenings from 19:30. We can also look to work towards silver and gold awards. We are currently unable to offer obedience training on nights other that Monday.

Classes are open to both members and non-members alike.

The puppy foundation course runs on a set rotation. This is a six week course and so we have courses starting at various points through the year. 

The puppy foundation course is charged at £48 for the full course and this is paid up front on the first night.

All other training classes are currently charged at £8 per night on a pay-as-you-go basis (£7 for club members).

Please navigate to the "About Us" section of the website and choose "Contact Us", ensuring you select obedience as the contact option, to enquire about current availability. Please note that the club is run by volunteers and responses may take a few days.

Training Update

12th July 2021


**Please note that we are still not in the position to be able to offer obedience training for the time being. This is due to the venue we use and we hope to have further updates in the near future**

There is no wait list in place........

Please do NOT send inquiries at the current time for obedience training, as these will not be responded to due to the very high volumes being received.

Once obedience training opens back up this will be advertised and the places will be opened up on a first come first served basis at that time. We are unable to take pre-registrations / come back to people expressing interest, so please do not message and then be under the impression that you are on a waiting list.


Thank you for your understanding.
