2018 is a very special year for me. Why because this year is 25 years since I started The Friendly Dog Club. From very humble beginnings as a fund raiser for St John Ambulance here we are with a wonderful Dog Training School providing Good Citizen Dog Training for our local community.
www.friendlydog.club has now become an established part of the New Milton Community in Hampshire. Through each year we raise money through our fun dog shows for lots of local charities.
I really can’t believe where that 25 years have gone. I do know that I have loved and lost a few of my wonderful dogs and I still have two people who joined me back in 1993 for my first faltering steps in running classes. Thank you Ian Dunbar for Sirius Puppy Training who provided the basis of what we have evolved in today and to Roy Hunter for the Fun Flyball Box (friendly dog club shop) and Terry Ryan for their innovative training that took me on this 25 year journey. Most important of all I still have the same passion for giving our dogs something interesting and and entertaining to do through kind and positive Training.
We offer training courses for every level of dog from puppy right up to advanced level. We're Kennel Club listed.
Agility classes for dogs from 10 months. Competitive, or just enjoyment and healthy exercise.
Gun dog classes for any age or breed. From beginners to more advanced dogs.
Our apps are written and hosted by The Friendly Dog Club's Angela Horsley. We currently have two apps, one for basic training and a follow up for 'the next steps'.
Our on-line shop supplies a number of useful dog items including our exclusive, hand-made flyball box.
