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.

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


Latest Update

We are on the move:-ONE NIGHT ONLY!!!!

Please note on 4th April 2018 for one night only we will be training, our Main Hall Classes and Breed, over in the Tollgate Hall. This is the one we used when the hall was being refurbished last year. The Main hall is having work done to the flooring so we will vacate for that Wednesday only. This will have minimum impact on our classes but as last time please make sure you only turn up for your allocated class time as you will not be allowed in Tollgate until your class is due(due to space restrictions).
