The Friendly Dog Club The Association of Pet Dog Trainers 00247

About us

The Friendly Dog Club was formed in 1993 and has been training dogs in the local area ever since.

We're lucky enough to have our own premises at Long Meadow, Barton on Sea with special non slip flooring and all our training equipment to hand.
