    Training with Down District Dog Training Club

    We offer a range of training opportunities from puppy classes through to competition obedience and agility. Click on your main area of interest from the Training sub menu on the left.


    It would be helpful if members could note the following:

    Please keep dogs on lead at all times unless directed otherwise by trainer.

    Please use a normal buckle and lead ( no retractable leads, choke chains, half-check collars or chain collars). Headcollars may be used if required.

    Treats should be tasty -ordinary dried kibble or dry bonio type biscuits do not make good training treats. Small pieces of chicken, sausage, cheese, sardine cake or other favourite food are best.

    Keep treats within easy reach  - a small bag in your pocket, bum bag or special treat bag is best.

    Toys should be small enough to keep in pocket. Tuggy-type interactive toys are best and these should be kept apart from other toys and used when training or playing with your dog.

    Please pick up after your dogs both at the training hall and at the agility field and please take poo away for disposal.

    All club members wishing to train in Agility are expected to help with setting up equipment and its dismantling and storage at the end of training.

    Agility training may be cancelled at short notice in adverse weather conditions.

    Please dress appropriately for your comfort: flat shoes/boots and for agility, loose fitting trousers and rain gear when appropriate.
