The Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh is the UK's only purpose-built, completely dog-friendly venue, suitable for a wide range of canine activities.

Run by The Kennel Club Educational Trust, the building is a centre of educational excellence for dogs and their owners, and supports the charity's aim of educating the public about dogs and responsible ownership.

The building is available for hire. Since first opening its doors in 2009, it's been used for a range of events, such as:

  • AGMs
  • Dog training
  • Dog shows and competitions
  • Companion dog shows and charity events
  • Educational seminars

Both the office and on-site caretaker are on hand to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Discover our upcoming events at The Kennel Club Building
  • Leamington Dog Training Club continues to run agility on Tuesday evenings, puppy training, general obedience and ringcraft on Wednesday evenings and rally training on Thursday evenings
  • Stoneleigh Rally also offer rally training on Monday evenings. Rally is a growing canine sport, combining elements of competitive obedience, agility and companion dog training. It differs from obedience, primarily in that competitors and dogs attempt a pre-set course, along which signs are placed at a number of stations, where dogs perform one of over 50 different pre-set exercises.
