NEXT 10-WEEK COURSE BEGINS:
TUESDAY, 7th JANUARY, 2020
OLDER/RESCUED DOGS: 8pm.
The Autumn term is in full swing, with all those summer puppies eager to learn and socialise. Our current 10-week course will run (with the exception of Tuesday, November 5th! when all sensible dogs and owners stay indoors!) until Tuesday, 3rd December. The 2020 session begins on Tuesday, 7th January (see box above.)
Please note: courses fill up very quickly, so do book well in advance. If you're unable to join us then at the time, then you're very welcome to come along and observe, soak up the mayhem, and pick up some training-tips, with a view to joining us at a later date.
We run certificated 10-week courses in Basic Obedience throughout the year, with an option for more advanced training. Our experienced team will also help with any canine problems, so don't struggle on alone! Apart from learning the basics, the major spin-off from any good class is socialisation, and we can guarantee you and your dog will have many enjoyable evenings.
Obedience-sessions take place at Catwick Village Hall. please note post-code for SatNav purposes: HU17 5PR
Be sure to book early to avoid disappointment, as we only take 10 dogs per class.
We also welcome young handlers, who are, after all, the dog-owners of tomorrow.
BELOW: Some puppy graduates: Darby, Hector, Molly, Tiki and Lance.
AND BELOW: The not-so-puppy bunch: Lenka, Evie, Arlo, Lottie and Nutmeg.
All training is reward-based (is there any other kind?) so do bring a pocketful of bite-sized treats!

ABOUT HORNSEA DOG OWNERS
Thanks to the foresight of the late John and Molly Weeks, HDOC was founded in 1990
in response to anti-dog propaganda and the threat of a dog-ban in Hornsea's Hallgarth
Park. Since then, it has trained many hundreds of dogs in basic and advanced obedience...
one in the eye for the dog-detractors!
Through various activities, most particularly its annual Dog-Show, the club has also established strong links with, and raised money for many dog-charities and sanctuaries, local and national. We liaise very closely with our local vet/police-station/dog-warden and Town Council, who regard us as setting the tone for responsible ownership, and we've also helped re-home many a stray or abandoned animal.
ANNUAL DOG-SHOW :
Please note that. in lieu of show-proceeds, the club makes an annual donation to a nominated canine-charity.
In 2013, HDOC gave £1000.00 to Hessle Dog-Rescue, and in 2012, the same amount to the Hillside Animal Rescue, in aid of Romanian Dog-Rescue.
Our 2015 donations, each totalling £1,000.00 were split between two deserving charities: Hessle Dog-Rescue which does great work fostering and re-homing unwanted dogs, and The Soi Dog-Foundation, which rescues and rehabilitates animals destined for the vile dog-meat trade. www.soidog.org
Our 2016 donations, each of £1000, were once again split between Hessle Dog Rescue to provide funding for canine medication and surgery, and The Soi Dog Foundation, to enable the purchase of food, bedding and medication for abused and needy street-dogs.
In 2019, we gave £1,000 to the Maggie Fleming Animal Hospice, the only such organisation in Britain, which does wonderful work taking in and caring for dying animals of every species.
The hospice is a registered charity which relies entirely upon donations.
