Why HDDTS exists...

HDDTS 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 2020 we celebrated our sixtieth 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 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 they are.

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.

I first contacted the club when we welcomed our first family dog, everyone was very helpful with assisting us with our training and answering any questions we had. The beginners course was a great starting point for us and I would recommend the Hertford District Dog Training to anyone.
