Who are you?

Toowoomba Dog Obedience Club (TDOC) is a group of people, affiliated with the CCCQ and ANKC, who love our dogs. We work with, train and trial our dogs with many of them holding multiple titles across many fields including Obedience, Rally O, Agility, Jumpers, Dancing with Dogs and Tracking.

All our trainers are volunteers who have years of experience in the dog obedience field, and we want to share that experience with you.

What do you do?

We teach you to teach your dog. We will help you to become a team and work together happily and effectively. We use positive reinforcement (treats and praise) to create and foster a fun working relationship between you and your dog. We don’t practice outdated and cruel techniques such as dominance to train our dogs.

Where are you?

Toowoomba Dog Obedience Club is located at Norman Park, on the corner of Hursley Rd and Tor St, Toowoomba, QLD 4350. Prospective new members are encouraged to come down and observe at any of our sessions or events. We are happy to answer any questions about our club and methods that you may have, but ask kindly that you don’t bring your dog along to sessions that you are not participating in.
