1st March 2009 - The end of an era

Sadly our president Ken Dolman, passed away on Sunday 1st March. Ken was a founder member of Northants Dog Training Club and was widely known by many in the obedience dog training community both as a competitor and judge, he was proud to have judged at Crufts in 1988. Ken was elected as president to the club along with his wife Jean in 1999. Ken could always offer advice and had a story to tell he will be missed by all at NDTC and at the local dog shows.


I was sorry to read that Ken has passed away. Could you please send my condolences to Jean. Hayley

It is with great sadness that we learn of Ken's death last week. Apart from being a personal friend, he was also a major supporter of our Charity. We send our sympathies to Jean and all at NDTC at this time. Our Dog Shows will not be the same without our "Dogfather". May he rest in peace. Wellingborough Dog Welfare  

Jean Dolman 1932 - 2014

It is with deep regret that we have to announce the death of our longest serving member and president Jean Dolman on 20th November 2014 with her funeral taking place on December 5th at Moulton Church.

Jean was deeply involved with the club from its earliest days until very recently. Married to Ken she always seemed the quiet one while you couldn’t help but notice Ken who was more vocal. She was not only our president in recent years following the death of Ken, she had always been a very active member, being a committee member for a number of years and was also secretary, which was a time consuming job that I can confirm from my own experience and she didn’t have the luxury of a computer. Both Ken and Jean had a real love of dogs having many over the years in their care including some re-home dogs such as their most recent one Floss. Although I never remember Jean taking any classes I do remember Ken saying to me that she could get better results than he could with some of the more difficult dogs they had cared for over the years I’m not sure that she will now be reunited with Ken in heaven it’s more likely that that they will both be over ‘rainbow bridge’ with Slipper, Trooper, Chief, Dave and the rest of their canine family.  John
