Whatever you have a go at don’t forget to send us your photos and videos on Instagram, Twitter or YouTube with the hashtag #friendlydogclubchallenge these will appear on our website social media page. Also post to Facebook, but these will only be visible to group club members and won't appear on the website.

Hope you are following the rules and staying safe.

Everyone who is registered should have received a newsletter about the new challenge.  If you haven’t then please check your junk box.  If nothing there can you please let either Kate or myself know with your email so we can check it out and try to investigate why your newsletters are not arriving!  

Missing you all but at the same time hope you are staying safe and well. Don’t forget to spread the word about our  online courses and challenges.  Details below:

‘Lockdown Puppy Course’

The course is aimed at new puppy owners during the current lockdown situation. The course covers everything that puppies need to be learning now, plus advice on socialisation, toys and general care and free advice via phone or video chat.

‘Fun Training Challenges’

Alongside this we have launched a more advanced online training package, setting out weekly challenges, with video support. This will help everyone keep their dogs active and engaged through this difficult time. The challenges start with a basic exercise which can be extended to other more complex exercises.

We are asking everyone to share their training experiences by uploading videos and photos to Instagram and Twitter or YouTube using the hashtag #friendlydogclubchallenge. View social posts on our social wall.

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.

Remember a trained dog is a happy dog.
