Redlands Dog Obedience Club teaches you the fundamentals of dog obedience. Whether you are looking to train your companion to be better behaved or to compete in the ring we can provide training, assistance and support. We are a community run organisation bringing together like minded people who want to have fun with their dogs and give back to the community. We focus on helping people understand what it means to be a responsible dog owner through competitive and non-competitive activities.

Obedience is driven by creating a strong bond between you and your dog. We train this through standard obedience techniques, positive reinforcement and games.
