Welcome to the web site of the Hertford and District Dog Training Society.

We have just reopened at The Drill Hall in a limited capacity. Please email  intake@hddts.org for further advice.

Due to Covid 19 you will be unable to come to The Drill Hall to make enquiries.


The Society was set up to help dog owners to become responsible Dog Handlers. It was established over a table in a local pub back in 1960, and in 2010 we celebrated our fiftieth year! We are proud to be one of the largest dog training clubs in the country.

The club – which is Kennel Club listed – is a non-profit making organisation run entirely by volunteers. We have an active Committee and trainers all hold a nationally recognised qualification – many to advanced level.

We run regular Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme sessions in preparation for the tests, so you can prove to the world your dog’s as well behaved as you think he is!

So if you are in the Hertford and Ware region and would like to take your dog to a friendly dog training club then please contact us.
