Every club requires its members to observe certain
rules. Ours are not demanding and are based on common sense and courtesy.
Warringal Obedience Dog Club (WODC) is not responsible for any misdemeanor caused by a handler or dog.
All members must wear their membership card when attending class.
Bitches in season or sick/injured dogs are not allowed on the training ground.
- Dogs must be on lead at all times whilst on the training ground, except when engaged in "off lead" exercises.
Dog droppings must be picked up IMMEDIATELY by handlers and removed from the school grounds.
There is a bin on the corner of Rattray Road and Were Street, opposite the school.
Children aged 15 years and under must have adult supervision at all times whilst on the training ground and at the toilets.
Smoking is not permitted in classes or on the school grounds.
- A dog that has bitten or shows undue aggression must be reported to an instructor/committee member.
Members are not allowed to use spiked or electric collars on their dogs on the WODC grounds.
Under NO circumstances, at any time, is food to be spat or thrown at any dog or held in the mouth for use as a training aid on WODC grounds. Discreet use of food from the hand is acceptable.
- Dogs are not permitted on the tennis courts or in the administration building (the castle).
- Instructors are not to take handlers' dog to demonstrate any exercise.
CAUTION - BEWARE OF TETHERED DOGS
Caution is required where dogs have been tied up to a post/stake. Members are requested to take care walking past the area at the side of the containers and to maintain a safe distance with their dog(s).
