Basingstoke and District Dog Training Club Rules


We ask everyone attending the Club to show respectful behaviour to each other and to the dogs. Verbal abuse or threatening actions will not be tolerated

Be thoughtful and attentive of dogs when coming into or leaving the premises. This is often the most stressful experience for dogs – and owners

Please never touch a dog without first asking the owner. Some dogs coming to Club may be nervous and/or unused to people and other dogs

Harsh handling or punishing your dog in a way deemed cruel or inappropriate is not acceptable

A temporary or Full Club Membership is required before dog training can commence

Dogs that are unwell or bitches in season are not to be brought to the Club

Cleanliness and Toilet Manners

Please ensure your dog goes to the toilet off the Venue grounds before coming to Club. There is a footpath and appropriate bin outside the School grounds by the pedestrian gate closest to the Club entrance

If your dog soils either on the Venue grounds or inside the Club, please clean up.

Dispose of poo bags in an appropriate bin outside the premises or take them home. Urine on the building walls must be washed down with disinfectant too. Poo Bags and cleaning products are available on request

Please bring your own poo bags and wipes to Club


Sight of certified proof of immunisation for Parvo and Lepto is required for all Puppies

Training Equipment

Ensure your dog is wearing a secure, comfortable collar with a name tag including your surname, telephone number and address

No choke chains, half chokes, metal leads or flexi leads are to be used at Club

Harnesses are fine for coming to and from Club but please use a proper collar (unless there is a medical reason not to) and soft lead for training

Handlers please wear appropriate clothing for dog training – comfortable soft shoes and clothing

Junior Handlers

As a guideline junior handlers are expected to be 12 or older

Junior handlers will be evaluated by a Club Instructor prior to being accepted for training

All handlers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible non-training adult

Families and Visitors at Club

Please introduce yourself at reception when you first come to Club

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible non-training adult at all times

Only one handler per dog please

Only handlers and dogs on the training floor

No distractions or interruptions from Observers

Observers please sit calmly on a chair off the floor area taking care to come and go quietly

Guidelines for Children and Dogs

Never leave young children and puppies or dogs unsupervised

Ensure your dog has uninterrupted rest time when needed away from any children

Make sure children keep their faces away from the dog

Don’t allow children and dogs feeding to mix. It’s best to keep children, dogs and food separate unless they are being carefully supervised

Ensure children never poke, grab or jump on the dog
