Fundraising

 

 

 

ADTC fundraises for chosen charities during the year at our member's social events.

We are currently raising funds for Battersea dogs and cats home: 
Battersea aims to Never Turn Away a Dog or Cat in Need

The Club was established in 1975 and is registered with The Kennel Club.

We are a non-profit making organisation, run and supported by a committee of professional qualified trainers who employ both classical and operant conditioning training methodology.  The committee are all volunteers giving their time for free to the club. 

We run 3 different dog obedience classes, for dogs after initial vaccinations and over. 

In these classes, you, as the handler, will train your dog, facilitated by qualified trainers - our aim is to give you the skills to take away and train your dog outside of the classroom.

 

We actively encourage social interaction with our members and organise activity evenings and social gatherings, which include our ‘four legged friends’.
