New Members / Enrollment
How Do I Join?
All memberships and renewals must be completed online (links below). All memberships and renewals MUST be submitted at least 48 hours before you attend training (e.g. sign up online on Friday for a Sunday class). The only exception to this is for members registering their puppies 16 weeks and under.
Online Membership RegistrationsPurchase your General Membership here. IMPORTANT: When completing the form, select SINGLE MEMBERSHIP, do NOT select Family Membership. You will receive a confirmation email when the payment has been processed. You will need to present this confirmation to the on-site van prior to the start of training on a Sunday morning with a copy of your dog's vaccination certificate and any pensioner concession (if applicable) to collect your membership card/s. You will be given a badge allowing you to attend as many classes as you wish during the current club year and then will be directed to the appropriate class.
Members congregate at the white van before classes each Sunday morning for club announcements and are then directed to their classes. On the first day attending the club, please arrive half an hour early to ensure that you can show your vaccination papers and pick up your club badge before training begins.
Agility and Dances With Dogs MembershipsBefore purchasing an Agility or Dances with Dogs membership, you must first purchase a General membership (see above). Agility and DWD memberships need to be purchased for each dog attending training, so you will need to do this twice if you want to train two dogs.
Purchase your Agility Membership here. IMPORTANT: When completing the form, select SINGLE MEMBERSHIP, do NOT select Family Membership. Make sure your dog has been assessed by an Agility Instructor before purchasing an Agility membership.
Purchase your DWD Membership here. IMPORTANT: When completing the form, select SINGLE MEMBERSHIP, do NOT select Family Membership.
Please note that your dog's up-to-date vaccination certificate must be presented at the time of enrollment. Please read our vaccination requirements.
Can Children Train Their Dogs?
Yes, but there are rules pertaining to child handlers.
What Should I Bring To Training?
- Lots of dog training treats. A good quality wet food such as polony, cheese, sausage, chicken cut into small pieces (smells better to your dog). Whatever your dog absolutely loves but doesn’t get on a regular basis at home. After all, this is positive re-enforcement training. Please do not use plastic bags for the treats but some form of treat pouch (available from the van), as plastic bags can be - and have been - all too easily dropped and then swallowed by a dog. Remember - little or lo breakfast for your dog before training. They will work much better for you and more importantly - not get too fat!
- Water – for both dog and owner
- Dog toy – for a break in training
- Enclosed shoes
- Hat and sunscreen
