The society used to be called The North Cheshire Canine Club and was first established in August 1950. It was 1951 when the name was changed to Altrincham and District Alsatian Training Society; though, other dog breeds were accepted in to the group.

In the 1950s, all dog members had to be a ‘pedigree’ or a ‘working’ dog, however this is no longer the case; we accept any breed of dog into the society.

During 1952 the society gained its official affiliation to the Kennel Club. The club focus was mainly obedience training.

It was in 1967 when the name was changed to our official name; ‘The Altrincham and District Dog Training Society.

We became a registered charity in 1990 and offer all kinds of dog training courses and exciting activities in addition to official Kennel Club events. We welcome all kinds of dogs and owners with a variety of experience. Our main focus now is ‘pet-dog’ training, which we offer in a wonderful, relaxed and friendly environment.
