Lots of people join clubs and have hobbies, but some are more unusual than most; as this Kentish quartet demonstrates

Detling Canine

Society

Ever watched Crufts and thought ‘that looks interesting?’ Well, if that’s the 
case, then the Detling Canine Society 
could be the club for you.

“We’re a small, friendly club that welcomes new members and their dogs 
to our training sessions. These represent a great environment to socialise your puppy and at the same time learn about the various aspects of ringcraft,” explains Karen Angier, chairman of the society.

The society’s classes start at 8pm every Friday, beginning with training for puppies under six months of age, and then followed by training for all dogs over six months.

“Each week we have different trainers 
to help you to get the best from your dog 
in the show ring,” says Karen.

“It’s all about making the most of 
your beloved pet and ensuring that 
when it comes to behaviour and training, 
we’re jointly making the dog the best he 
or she can be.”

Although dog shows and ringcraft 
might be most associated with those 
of more advanced years, at Detling they attract members from all age groups.

“We have some very young people involved with the society, and in particular a very strong junior section,” says Debbie.

“The beauty of this hobby is that all 
that really matters is that those who get involved have a love of dogs. And that 
can be the case whether you’re 16 or 60.”

Man’s best friend comes in all manner 
of shapes and sizes. But if you have a tiny Pomeranian or a gigantic St Bernard, 
Karen says that there is a place for 
you with the society.

“This is great hobby to get involved 
with. Not only do you get to spend more time with your dogs but you also get to mix with people with a similar mentality towards these animals,” says Karen.

“The advice that I would give to people 
is that if you have any interest in what 
we do then bring your dog along. We’re 
a very welcoming bunch.”
