Welcome to Central Essex Dog Training Society

Using 'fun' methods to get the best from you and your dog.


Central Essex is a Dog Training Club, registered with the Kennel Club, set up and run by dog enthusiasts for dog enthusiasts.

Classes are held on Wednesday Evenings at Stanway Village Hall, Villa Road, Stanway, Colchester, CO3 0RH.

There are Ringcraft and Obedience classes which can help you to get the best out of your dog.

We can offer help and advice at all levels:

  • From learning to 'Sit' and 'Stay' all the way to competition level obedience

  • From entering your first show to competing at Crufts.

Click here for details of our training classes.

Please Note: Your dog is not insured in our hall until you are a member. Therefore, please leave the dog outside until you have joined our club.

We also train for, and award, the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme
