Dog Of the term

"PLEASANT WAY OF MAKING ROVER A GOOD CITIZEN." This was the headline in the Littlehampton Gazette on Friday January 5th 1973. 

Littlehampton Dog Training Club was founded in 1972 by our President, John Greenfield, his wife, Marion and two friends who wished to promote better behaved dogs in the local area.   Based in Wick Hall for about 35 years and more recently at Climping Village Hall, the Club has assisted many hundreds of owners to train their dogs in basic obedience thereby ensuring they become well adjusted and well behaved members of the community.  Our training is reward-based so that lessons are enjoyable and numbers are restricted in each class ensuring members are given the attention they need to achieve the desired standards of each class.

TyWe meet on Tuesday evenings starting at 6.00 p.m. with our Puppy Foundation Course and finishing with Class 4 which is for more experienced handlers and can be used as a gateway to competitive obedience if desired.  The Club has listed status with The Kennel Club which allows us to run Good Citizen Dog Scheme courses when appropriate.  All our instructors are very experienced and have been with the Club for many years.  Because the Club is non-profit making, and the instructors give their time and expertise on a voluntary basis, we are able to keep our overheads to a minimum thereby ensuring our fees are extremely reasonable.

We support a canine-related charity each year – this year we are supporting The Cinnamon Trust - and to raise funds we organise an annual Dog Show and arrange occasional social events.

At Littlehampton Dog Club both you and your dog – puppy or rescue, mature or adolescent - may be assured of a friendly welcome.  You are amongst fellow dog lovers and we will do all we can to help you to achieve ownership of an obedient and well adjusted pet who is a pleasure to have as a member of your family.
