Indoor classes are now up and running and going really well.   

Safety to members and staff has been paramount in our reopening, this means classes will only have 5 dogs plus a trainer to maintain Social distancing rules. See our dedicated COVID-19 page for more helpful information.

Sorry to those who haven't made it into a class yet but you are on our waiting list. There are just not enough hours in the day!

The Friendly Dog Club was established in 1993 and over the years we have helped successfully train thousands of dogs to be Good Citizens and Good Companions we hope you enjoy and learn from our new online training courses.
