Further details on joining the Tuggeranong Dog Training Club can be found here


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.

 

Obedience Classes and Level 1 Induction

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.
