MDTC was established in 1986 and remains a not-for-profit organisation, run by a Committee and offering trainers who, along with the Committee, are all volunteers.

The Club is dedicated to responsible dog ownership and subscribes to force-free dog training values/methods, as advocated by the Institute for Modern Dog Training, the Kennel Club and other leading trainers and behaviourists. We focus therefore not only on the skills dogs need to live as happy companions to us but also on the relationship between dog and owner/carer.

More information about our training can be found on our Training Classes page.
