Welcome to the web site of the Mornington Obedience Dog Club. We offer a wide variety of activities including Puppy Classes, Obedience and Rally. The training methods used at Mornington focus on positive reinforcement through the use of food or toys coupled with praise. The aim of our training is to have a well-socialised dog with that socialisation continuing for the life of the dog.
New members are welcome to join on any Saturday. Bookings are not necessary! We ask new and returning members to come to the registration desk no later than 15 minutes before class time.
