About us
Here at Newmarket & District Canine Society, our goals are happy dogs and happy people. Our training methods are sympathetic and positive and we focus on the relationship between you and your dog.  Our aim is that you make each other happy!

The Club has been established since 1967 and provides kind, motivational and reward-based training to owners of dogs of all breeds, ages and abilities.

We are a non-profit organisation and our experienced trainers give of their time on a voluntary basis.  We regularly donate to dog-related charities and hold fund-raising events to further our support.

Puppy classes

We love to start puppies on a successful journey towards becoming well-mannered, social and obedient members of the family.  We try and accommodate puppies as soon as they are ready to join us so you can start their (and your!) training as early as possible.  More details can be found on the Puppy Class page.  For more information, see contact details below.


All classes are held at Kirtling on Wednesday evenings

Kirtling Village Hall
Newmarket CB8 9PB

Christmas & New Year 2017

Last classes will be held on 14 December 2017 and we re-open in the New Year on Wednesday 10 January.


We also hold ringcraft classes for people interested in breed showing.  All classes are held on Wednesday evenings at Kirtling Village Hall and further details can be found in the right hand column and the Ringcraft page on this website.

Where can you find us?
Our classes are held at Kirtling Village Hall (see map below).  In summer months, weather permitting, we also train on the recreational ground to the rear of the hall.   We want you to enjoy the social side of the club, too, and get to know your fellow members.  We offer free coffee and tea and the opportunity to watch other classes at work.
