WDTC Ringcraft Group

If you are considering joining our ringcraft group, here is all the information you will need about our group – with details of how to join.

Ringcraft class is on Tuesday evenings at our Coulsdon location which is Hillcrest Hall, 42 Fryston Avenue, Coulsdon, CR5 2PT. There is a big car park next to the hall.
There is a map of the location on this website, under the Classes link

All pedigree dogs are welcome to come to ringcraft, although it is not a replacement for obedience classes. Information about our obedience classes can be found elsewhere on the website.

As dogs can be shown from 6 months old, you can start ringcraft classes as soon as your puppy is ready to go out.

The session starts at 7.30 pm and finishes at 9.30 pm.

Ringcraft Class Fees

Once you have joined Warlingham Dog Training Club, you pay £5.00 per session, per dog, when you attend. Annual membership is renewable every January. Normal annual membership for a single adult is £15, (£20 for a joint adult). The rates are lower for over 60's. Only people who handle the dog in class need to be members.

We train every Tuesday during the year.

If you are coming to ringcraft for the first time, go through the double doors into the large hall. There is a place on the right with a kitchen, and one of the organisers will be there. Go and introduce yourself to them, and they will go through the paperwork with you.

If you want to take a look before joining, you are very welcome - but please do not bring your dog.

Every session varies - sometimes there are a lot of dogs, other times just a few - but we are quite a successful club - on the website we have our recent results, including Crufts, on our Ringcraft Achievements page.

There is no waiting list to join ringcraft group, as we don't have a limit on spaces. This does mean that the weekly numbers may vary. If you have never attended ringcraft classes before, please do let the trainer know.

We hope that you enjoy training with the club.

Your Ringcraft Trainer

Adrienne Thomas

I first attended training classes at the age of 9 with our family Labrador.
I went on to share my life for the last 43 years exhibiting racing and lure coursing & modelling with our hounds.

I exhibited my Afghans Hounds in the '90,s where they were successful in the ring.
I took a break from showing due to work commitments and the fact my bitch was not happy in the ring so we decided to take her racing, every weekend.
She went on to become a UK Supreme Racing Champion breaking track records all over the country.

In 2002 I was diagnosed with a progressive degenerate muscle wasting and skin disease. Polymyositis and Systemic Sclerosis and Raynaud's. This took some time to come to terms with. Sadly it put an end to my exhibiting.

In 2003 AUDIGIER Kennels was formed comprising of Altside Blue Fusion & Altside Paparazzi. Sadly we lost Altside Paparazzi to a rare genetic illness at the age of 3.
In 2012 Audigier imported Agha Djaris Fast Love @ Audigier who has secured her UK Stud Book Number and multiple wins in France & Luxembourg and is a SBIS winner in Germany. She has just secured her German Champion title and we look forward to gaining her International title shortly.
We hope to start our breeding programme in 2017.
Audigier Kennels has also imported Agha Djaris Lonesome Cowboy @ Audiger who we have high hopes for in the coming years.

I am a member of the Kennel Club.
I judge at Breed Specialist level.
I have also taught at a West London Ring Craft class for the last three years. Over the last 5 years I have traveled around the world gaining experience of handling techniques and styles. I hope to relay this to the members to give them confidence and professionalism in the show ring.

Finally I would just like to say that from any early age I have had a passion for all breeds of dogs.
It's seems only natural for me to be working with them and I enjoy every moment of it. You never stop learning!
