TDTC Constitution – Proposed Amendment
The TDTC Committee held a meeting on 9 December 2020, open to all club members, to discuss proposed amendments to our Constitution. At the meeting, it was agreed that more time was needed to consider the amendments. As such the consultation period for the amendments has been extended to 1 February 2021. For the reference of any interested parties, you can view the draft Constitution with proposed amendments tracked through the document, by clicking here and a clean version of the draft Constitution by clicking here.
We are currently organising to meet with Dogs ACT to discuss the proposed changes. A follow up meeting, at which TDTC members will be able to vote on the proposed changes (see the link above), will be scheduled once we have held discussions with Dogs ACT.
If you have any questions about the proposed amendments, please email the Committee via email@example.com..
***RESUMPTION OF TRAINING***
Our Return to play in a COVID-safe environment plan and further information about our return is available via the link below.
Our remaining sessions for 2020, will run with shorter class times, over 10 weeks. The shorter class are to provide time for members to exit the grounds, and enable the club to keep within the Directions issued by the ACT Government, in having no more than 100 people on the grounds at any one time.
Our updated sessions, including dates and class times can be found here
During class times on both Sunday and Tuesday, our exercise yards will be closed. This is to ensure members do not congregate on the grounds, before or after their class times. We have taken the approach, along with many other club in the ACT to ‘get in, train, get out. We appreciate your assistance in following these new processes.
Our exercise yards will be open outside of class times, We ask that you continue to the current social distancing rules:
• remain at least 1.5 metres away from other people (other than people in your household)
• practise good hygiene (including washing your hands often and avoid touching your face)
• go to the ACT Government website for more information www.covid19.act.gov.au.
We look forward to seeing you and your pooches again soon.

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.
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.
