About Obedience

OBEDIENCE TRAINING IS FOR ALL DOGS

BDOC instructors will assist YOU in developing your dog’s behaviour so it can become an accepted member of the community. Advanced training is also offered to members who wish to take part in the rewarding sport of obedience trialling.

Obedience is:

  • for your own pleasure and the dog’s happiness, well being and safety
  • to bond with your dog
  • to assist in correcting dog behavioural problems

A basic level of obedience training may also be required to participate in other activities offered by the club.
