TDTC is a volunteer run, not for profit club, founded in 1995 to address the need within the community to provide obedience training for dogs. 

We offer a graduated training program. This allows you and your dog to progress at your own speed in a fun, supportive environment.

Classes are held for the owner who would like a well-behaved companion or those interested in competing in events such as flyball, agility, rally obedience and obedience trialing.

Our Goal

  • To provide you with the skills and techniques to train your dog to be a well mannered, social companion.
  • For your dog to develop into a trained obedience dog who will meet you and your family’s needs, as well as those of our wider community. A canine companion you can be proud of.

Your instructor will guide you through our Clicker Training program which uses positive reinforcement to teach your dog the rights and wrongs in their behaviour.  The result will be a happy dog, happy handler and a very happy household.

Club Membership  ($20 Discount for dogs who have attended Puppy School!)

Your annual Club membership allows you to:

  • attend up to five, eight-week training sessions per year (if you are doing the obedience course); with each session having a one hour weekly obedience class;
  • have full use of the fully fenced club grounds and facilities;
  • receive professional support for you and your dog in your training; and
  • have the opportunity to socialise your dog in a safe, fun environment where you can meet other club members and receive invites to all club activities.

Our training is also suitable for members who wish to continue on to obedience trialing
