AWL NSW Narooma Dog Training Club is there to help your dog get the best from you

The Narooma Dog Training Club (NDTC) was founded by Yve Robinson (local Narooma resident and life member of AWL NSW) and has been operating in the Eurobodalla Shire for more than 15 years.

Under the expert eye of NDTC Chief Instructor and using positive training methods, dog owners attend group classes and learn to be responsible and competent pet dog handlers. Puppies and dogs of all ages and breeds acquire good manners, socialise with other dogs and importantly, how to socialise with us humans. There are promotion days and award opportunities throughout the year, plus competitions and end of year trophies to be won. Agility and Rally Obedience are other training disciplines to be enjoyed. NDTC also holds a Dog Christmas Party with games, prizes, fancy dress and treats for everyone – it is all great fun!

All instructors are dedicated AWL NSW volunteers. They are experienced handlers who have completed obedience training to CCD level, some with more than one dog. Several have owned, cared for, and rehabilitated dogs so they know the difficulties that pet dog owners can face. Instructors are on-hand each week to give advice and assistance as part of the training program. Narooma Dog Training Club runs obedience and agility training programs throughout the year. The annual registration fee is kept to a minimum to encourage people to come along and learn how to handle their pets both at home and in public spaces. Once registered, there is a wealth of advice on tap!

The annual registration fee per handler is:

  • $25 Concession – Youth under 18/Pensioner

  • $40 Single Adult

  • $60 Family

A weekly ground fee of $3 is payable for each session attended.

You will need to wear comfortable closed in shoes. You will also need to bring dog-waste bags, a water bowl and some yummy treats for your dog as reward for a job well done!
