About Laleham Dog Training Club

Laleham Dog Training Club was founded in 1978 by Mary & Mervyn Stephens. Sadly Mary passed away in April 2016 but Mervyn remains Life President of the club and continues to take an active interest. Mary and Mervyn have been the driving force behind the Club’s commitment to supporting Dog Charities. For a number of years we have sponsored 5 of the Sanctuary greyhounds at Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare.  These are dogs who for one reason or another are not suitable for rehoming but will live out their days being looked after by the staff and volunteers at the centre. We are also sponsoring 2 puppies that are being trained by Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

We are Kennel Club registered, and offer all the Kennel Club Good Citizen awards for companion obedience, from Puppy, through Bronze and Silver up to Gold.

Agility classes are available for dogs that are a minimum of 1 year old and who have a good level of obedience already.

We quite often find that people join the club and start with obedience, work their way through all the levels and then when the dog is a year old, they do agility (and/or become assistant trainers!!).

We pride ourselves on being a club, not a business and our primary aim is to make training fun, enjoyable and affordable to all. We have several events throughout the year for members to take part in – we’ve just had our Annual Fun Day where we had a Dog Show and various competitions, raffle, tombola etc and raised £800 for charity and our Christmas parties are always a big hit.

If you would like any further details on any of the training classes we offer – for obedience or agility, please contact us.

Please be aware that all the trainers at LDTC teach obedience and agility classes on a voluntary basis as a hobby.  None of them are Professional Dog Trainers nor do they receive a salary or wage.  The training methods they employ are gained from personal experience, courses and from each other.  Some of the trainers are registered as students of the Kennel Club Accredited Instructor scheme and this is noted on their profiles.  As part of the Scheme, these trainers must adhere to the Kennel Club Code of Conduct.
