About Us

Hooley Dog Club

Hooley Dog Club was founded in 2003 at Hooley Village Hall, and provided enjoyable training services to dog owners to help improve their dogs' domestic skills. We are Kennel Club listed; therefore we carry out the Puppy Foundation courses as well as the Bronze, Silver and Gold ‘Good Citizen’ dog schemes.

We are strong believers in motivational training and endeavour to make classes fun for both handler and dog. NO HARSH HANDLING is permitted.

Our classes are mixed and matched for variety, and classes include Obedience, Beginners Rally’O and Basic Agility. We also include ‘scent’ exercises where the dog has to find its own article because dogs love to use their noses.

All breeds of dog welcome and we encourage younger family members to come along to train too.
