History - 1983-present

In 1998 the club introduced puppy classes. This was for puppies between 46 months, who were fully vaccinated.

Towards the end of 1999, the club organised an evening at the Post House Hotel, Chatham to celebrate its 40 years. Two speakers were invited and photographs involving all aspects of the club from the previous 40 years were displayed.

The club was given three months notice in January 2001 to leave the current hall due to building work, so club nights were moved to Mondays and 19th March 2001 saw the club at DERAC Community Centre, Davis Estate, Chatham.

In 2003 the club decided to join the Kennel Club Good Citizenship Award Scheme. It involved training members towards Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. We held our first Bronze award on 23rd September 2003. The first Silver award was held in August 2004, with Gold another year later in 2005.

January 2006 saw the club on the move again to Chattenden Community Hall, Chattenden, still on Monday evenings, but two halls are available, allowing the puppies and more difficult dogs to be in the smaller hall and three classes being held in the larger hall.
