The Rockhampton Dog Obedience Club is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting responsible dog ownership. Individual problems can be discussed with your instructor before or after classes. Your instructor may not have all of the answers, but collectively, the instructor team has many of the answers.

We teach YOU to train YOUR dog. Your instructor will show you how to train your dog.  It is not their role to teach your dog, as you would not then have the skills to handle or control your pet away from your instructor. It is important to remember that first, your dog learns to learn from you, and the respect and rapport develops as your training expertise improves. Then you can truly say that you have ‘mastered’ your dog!

RDOC offers a variety of different dog training classes that can be done just for fun or on a competition level.
