Welcome & Woof!
Northern Obedience Dog Club started in the early 1950’s when a group of people interested in obedience began to meet regularly to train their dogs. We are proud to be the second oldest obedience club in Victoria, with over 600 paying members. Click here for more history.
We welcome handlers over the age of 10 years (with parents’ signed permission & on-the-ground supervision).
Please note that we train on public parkland, so make sure you clear it with your vet first if your puppy is under 16 weeks old. Vaccinated dogs 6 months and older can start in Foundation Class (instead of Puppy Class).
We only accept dogs with valid Vaccination Certificates or a current Antibody Titre Test.
You will need a Club Membership! Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, to register your interest in wanting join the Club, please mention the age of your dog in the email. There is currently a waiting list to join the Club. Introduction classes are conducted via Zoom.
We’re an affordable non-profit community club staffed by volunteers dedicated to promoting the training and understanding of your dog. We charge a once-off joining fee and a recurring annual membership fee, which gives you unlimited classes for most of the year! Membership includes our NODC Christmas BBQ too.
The Club trains people to train their dogs. Owners with dogs under 6 months start in Puppy Class (Sunday only); and all other members start in Foundation Class. We repeat the same exercises for each level and when you and your dog are ready, you will be promoted to the next level. We also offer Rally Obedience when instructors are available.
