Cumbernauld (and District
as we are formally known) Dog Training Club has been in existence for 40+ years, and is the only voluntary club in the area
providing training to Road Safety Standards. The Club is run by a committee of members.... for its members.
Our members offer a friendly welcome, and a wealth of knowledge and experience in dog ownership and training.
We were originally based in Fleming
Road community rooms in Seafar, but on its closure in 2006 we moved to a temporary home at Lomond Road Community rooms in
Condorrat. In 2007 we made a permanent move to more modern and spacious
premises which is our current location at Westfield Community Centre.
The Club looks to promote responsible dog ownership through training..
that's the handler and the dog! This is in line with North Lanarkshire Council's Good Dog Campaign.
The levels of Road Safety Training undertaken in
the Club are as follows:
: Intermediate: Advanced: Senior Advanced:
The levels encompass the basics like walking to heel on the lead (at beginnners level) sit and down
stays, right up to walking to heel off lead, recalling your dog from a distance, and giving voice only
commands from a distance.
We pride ourselves in being open to all members of the community, from the young (minimum age for junior members
10 accompanied by adult) to the more senior!! Our fees reflect this and can be seen on the membership forms page.
No person or dog is too young or old to learn a thing or two.
If you're interested come along and see us,
every Tuesday night at Westfield Community Centre from 7.00pm
