How to Join

INDUCTION DAYS

 

To join and before any training can commence it is compulsory that ALL new members attend an Induction Class first, which is held inside our Clubrooms.

The Induction class is your first lesson and is a verbal introduction about the club, our club rules  and dog training in general.

Induction class starts at 12.15pm sharp, so please ensure you get there on-time.

Late-comers will not be accepted.

After the induction talk, if you have decided to join our club, we'll get you to fill out an application form, present your dog's current vaccination card and pay your memberships fees. If you are a Dogs Victoria (or Victorian Canine Association) member you must bring your current Dogs Victoria Membership card to be exempt from paying the insurance levy.

Training of your dog starts the following week.

 

WHAT'S REQUIRED

 

Dogs or Puppies are NOT required to attend the induction class.

So please leave your dog home.

YOU MUST MAKE A BOOKING TO ATTEND THE INDUCTION CLASS.

As the induction sessions tend to fill quickly, it is advisable to ring and book your place as early as possible. Please do not leave it to the last minute as we do not want to dissapoint.

We usually train Rain or Shine - although training can be cancelled on the day at any time depending on weather & ground conditions and we will implement our Heat Policy when the weather is over 30 degrees Celsius.

 

Currently we have time restricted training sessions when weather is between 30 and 34 degrees Celsius  and all training will be cancelled when weather is 35 degrees or over.

 

INDUCTION CLASS - TRAINING INTRODUCTION

 

Instructors at Werribee Obedience Dog Club (W.O.D.C.) are holding their monthly meeting.  Over the last two (2) years we have invited the Induction class to attend our grounds at 7.00 p.m. on the Monday night following the Induction Day and commence Positive Reinforcement training, which in turn assists Instructions identifying any doggy issues and helps you acclimatise for future training.

 

This is totally voluntary and if you wish to attend, please inform the instructor taking the induction class on Saturday after Induction.

 

Please bring your dog / rewards and a warm coat.
