The Gold Coast Dog Obedience Training Club Inc was established in 1971 and has helped thousands of Gold Coasters train their dogs. Over the years our training methods have changed dramatically from the old “jerk and pull” method using choke chains to exclusively positive methods using rewards and soft collars.
Our are Club members who, after training their own dogs, have undertaken extensive instructor training. They volunteer their time to teach you how to train your dog; we do not train your dog for you. They will also give advice on dealing with problems you may have with your dog at home. Most instructors have trained one or more of their own dogs to competition standard.
We also develop the skills of handlers and dogs who aspire to compete in obedience and agility. The Club is affiliated with Dogs Queensland and conducts several recognised obedience and agility competitions each year.
