About The IDTC

Welcome to the website of the Island Dog Training Club, based in Collings Road, St Peter Port, Guernsey.  We are a non-profit making organisation, run solely by volunteers.   We were first registered with the Kennel Club on April 17th, 1962, although members were meeting and training for some time prior to that.  We are fortunate in that our predecessors had the foresight to invest in the future by ensuring that we have our own clubroom specifically for dog training, indoor shows and year round agility.
We offer a wide range of activities for you and your dog – Agility, pet dog classes, Puppy and New Members courses, Obedience competitions, Agility shows, rallies (friendly in-house competitions), Junior handling classes etc.  club has over 21 trainers and assistant trainers, who are very friendly and experienced, who donate their time and expertise for the Club’s benefit.  Having our own clubroom allows us to have classes almost every night of the week – Check out the Classes page.
We show people how to train their dogs, from puppies to older dogs, pedigree or mongrels – they all have potential and are welcome.  Our trainers attend courses in the UK to keep up to date with pet dog training techniques and we endeavour to bring trainers over regularly to the Island to run courses for trainers and members, which means we all benefit and the trainers are able to pass on up-to-date training to help with any problems you may be having with your pet.  
We have eight trainers who are qualified Pet Dog Training Instructors (PDTI) and ten Kennel Club qualified Good Citizen Assessors.
Please feel free to contact us, our details are on the contact page, should you wish to become a member and have fun with your puppy, dog, etc. or if you are interested in finding out more about any of the activities that we offer.
We look forward to welcoming new and past members so as to encourage responsible dog ownership.
