Dog Obedience Club

After a break we are now back up and running. For help with training reactive dogs or assistance dogs please see here:

What: We run dog obedience training classes for puppies and dogs of any age (if you have a puppy under 20 weeks, please click to see our puppy course here). Classes run for 45 minutes per week and are ongoing with payment taken every two months.  We have both daytime and evening options and indoor and outdoor classes. Every two months, the following obedience are covered (level depends on which grade you are on):

  • Recall (from distractions)
  • Sit, down and stand on command
  • Heel
  • Wait
  • Stay
  • Leave
  • Drop
  • Control around people (no jumping up, begging, mouthing)
  • Handling (grooming, vet inspection by owner and stranger)


Our centre in Shermanbury (above Henfield). A small, fully-fenced field, a lane and large indoor sand school are available for these classes.


Our next courses are scheduled to start on (you can join up to week three of a course):

  • Wednesday 2nd September at 9.45am – 10.30am (nine weeks) – Beginners
  • Wednesday 2nd September at 10.45am – 11.30am (nine weeks) – Advanced obedience and tricks
  • Wednesday 4th November at 9.45am – 10.30am (seven weeks – no class 23rd and 30th Dec) – Beginners
  • Wednesday 4th November at 10.45am – 11.30am (seven weeks – no class 23rd and 30th Dec) – Advanced obedience and tricks



How much: £10.00 per session, paid two months in advance.


Why: Teaching your dog obedience and tricks is a fun way to improve their overall obedience as well improving their strength and coordination which is important for body well being but also a great foundation for dog sports such as agility. A well trained dog is not only a pleasure to be around but is also safer for the public and for your dog themselves.

Further Info:
