Welcome to the Belconnen Dog Obedience Club!

Golden Retriever in class

The Belconnen Dog Obedience Club (BDOC) was formed in 1975 to provide dog training instruction and facilities for people living in North Canberra. The Club's main activity is obedience training for pet dogs, and we also offer training in dog sports including agility, dances with dogs, flyball, obedience trialling, and rally obedience.

BDOC is supported with much appreciated financial assistance from ACT Sport and Recreation Services and the Department of Education and Training ACT.

How to Join the Club

Joining BDOC is easy! Just complete a membership application form, dog profile form (for all dogs over 6 months of age), and return them to us with your membership payment and a copy of your dog's vaccination certificate. Your membership fee entitles you to sign your dog up for any of our training activities (subject to availability) that you and your dog are eligible for. [ Read more ]

Canine Companion Classes

Our canine companion classes cover behaviours that are useful in your dog’s everyday life, as well as some fun stuff too! Through our classes, dog owners learn about dog training concepts, the benefits of motivational training, and how to teach their dog a range of important life and social skills. We accept vaccinated dogs of all breeds from 12 weeks and up. [ Read more ]

Dog Sports

Our dog sports classes cater for dogs of all skill levels, from those learning the foundations of their sport of choice as well as dogs already participating in ANKC and AFA trials. Our dog sport classes are open to all financial members whose dogs are able to meet the criteria for their sport of choice. [ Read more ]
