Registration for new members for 2021 opens in early January
Great news! After a very disrupted 2020, KODTC will open registrations for the February 2021 new members intake in early January.
The first training day for new members and dogs will be on Sunday February 7th.
Because in February there is usually a huge number of people and their dogs wanting to join, we will limit the number of new dogs to 40. This is in order to ensure that class sizes are manageable and everyone has a good training experience.
There will be a link to the membership form on this page from early January. Once new members have submitted the form and paid their membership they will be contacted regarding when they can attend our New Member Induction Session which is compulsory for new members.
We trust that Covid will stay under control and that our new training year will go ahead as planned. For updates, keep an eye on this site or our Facebook page.
In the meanwhile we wish all of our members, potential new members, and their dogs, a wonderful Christmas season and a much better year in 2021
Welcome to KODTC
At Keilor Obedience Dog Training Centre we teach all the basic obedience exercises such as sit, stay, heel, come when called etc. We focus on teaching behaviours that will result in well mannered dogs that owners can be proud of and are able to take out and socialise with other dogs and people.
Our training methods use positive reinforcement techniques such as food, toys, and praise as motivators for the dogs. Our dogs do what we want because they want to please us, not because they are fearful of what may happen if they do the 'wrong thing'. We encourage our members to enjoy their training and spending time with their dogs.
We have a class structure that members and their dogs move through based on the amount of time and effort they are able to put into their training (and the individual characteristics of the dogs). There are no time limits on people and dogs being in any particular class.
Visit the JOIN THE CLUB page on this site for more information about how you and your dog can start training at KODTC
