“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
Metropolitan Mid-Week Dog Training Club is a voluntary organisation affiliated with DOGS NSW. We train you to train your dog along the lines of the NSW Companion Dog Act and/or to meet the requirements of competition Obedience Dog qualifications. We can help you raise a happy, well-mannered pet which can develop into competition dog trialling if you get the bug.

If you feel sick please stay at home.
Keep 1.5 m distance.
Use sanitiser before touching any equipment.
The Beginners course usually commences on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Please note that all vaccinations must be completed and paperwork sighted upon application. Please try to be at the Club by 9:30am to complete your paperwork and to toilet and settle your pup/dog prior to start time.
Our training is reward based gentle training.
The first session covers the “hows” and “whys” of dog training and gives you a chance to discuss issues specific to your dog, to get a feel of what lies ahead in your dog training.
Your dog/puppy requires an ordinary soft collar and lead. Bring heaps of soft treats – sausage or chopped chicken – NO BREAKFAST for them on training mornings.
Now, your dog won’t be fully trained in six weeks… after Beginners class (at the discretion of the Chief Instructor), you proceed to 1st Class, then 2nd, 3rd Class and then – who knows – Competition if you are interested in that path.
Tea and coffee are available at 11.00am after training – catch up time…..
Looking forward to meeting newcomers, catching up with friends and the most important reason we all join in the first place – our awesome dogs and puppies.
