Rugby Dog Training Club
is a Kennel Club registered dog training club based on the outskirts of Rugby in Warwickshire. The club was formed in 1962 as a training club for pet dogs and their owners and we are one of the longest established and successful dog training clubs in the UK
The Club is a non profit making organisation run by enthusiasts on a voluntary basis, no Committee Member, Trainer or Officials of the Club is paid.
The main aims of the Club are to benefit the residents of Rugby in the basic handling and understanding of their dogs and to promote the responsible training of dogs using the latest kind training methods.
The famous trainer who started HTM was Mary Ray, yes one of Rugby DTC's own trainers and when she is not flying round the world to countries as far away as Australia, Russia, USA and throughout Europe she still trains and teaches at the club on a weekly basis.
