MOORABBIN OBEDIENCE DOG CLUB
Covid-19 Update 8/07/2020
Regrettably with the introduction of Stage 3 restrictions, as communicated by the Premier on 7/07/2020, there will be NO training at Moorabbin Obedience Dog Club effective immediately.
We will wait for any further advice from the Government, local council and Dogs Victoria before determining a recommencement date.
Please keep safe and well and thank you for your understanding during this very difficult time. We look forward to getting back to training again soon.
Please note: Our Annual General Meeting previously scheduled for 22 November has been postponed due to the continuing uncertainty of the Coronavirus Pandemic and restrictions. The AGM has now been deferred to February 2021. The exact date will be communicated when the roadmap to Covid Normal is more certain.
Moorabbin Obedience Dog Club was established in 1972. We offer a wide variety of activities including Obedience, Agility, Rally and pre-puppy. The training methods used at MODC focus primarily on positive reinforcement through food, toys and praise as well as negative punishment which simply means withholding the positive reinforcement. There is a big emphasis on the importance of a well socialised dog and how socialisation doesn't end at pre-puppy but continues for the life of the dog.
We are also a trialling club and as well as hosting our own Obedience, Agility and Rally trials every year, have had many dogs compete successfully at the highest levels of competition over the past 41 years.
Moorabbin Obedience dog club caters for all standards puppy socialisation through to competition Obedience, Rally and Agility.
Training sessions are held on a Sunday morning.
The club holds Open trials in each of the disciplines we offer training for as well as member only competitions at various times in the year.
