About Us

A Bit About The Club...


Knowle Dog Training Club was established in 1979 and is run on a voluntary basis by our instructors.


Instructors are elected on to a committee annually at our AGM and are primiarly responsible for the day to day running of the club. We also elect one member of the club (non-instructor) to the committee to represent the other members.

Club House

Free tea and coffee is available in the club house for members and their families.

Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme

Associations & Charities

Our annual awards evening in November is an evening whereby the dog club recognises the efforts of both our instructors and members over the previous year. It is also used as an opportunity to support a local charity and invite them to speak at our event.
Here are just some of the charities we have welcomed over the years:

Hearing Dogs for the Deaf
• Dogs for the Disabled
• Heronfield Animal Rescue Centre
Border Collie Trust
Retired West Midlands Police Dog Benevolent Fund
Birmingham Dogs Home
Guide Dogs for the Blind
