Membership Fees

All BDOC memberships are due for renewal every July, and must be renewed before Week 4 of Session 3 of the canine companion class calendar. The amount that you are required to pay to join the Club will depend on the time of year that you are joining, the number of dogs that you are enrolling, and the number of activites you wish to participate in.

When joining the Club, you will need to pay a joining fee, plus a membership fee, plus a training fee for each activity that you will be attending. The following table outlines the fee schedule (effective from 18 April 2019).
