Bendigo Obedience Dog Club is a community based not for profit organisation established in 1963 and is fully run by volunteers wanting to educate Bendigo locals about responsible pet ownership through providing obedience training for puppies through to older dogs


Training techniques have vastly changed since the club first started. Today we offer a fantastic, positive based training program, teaching handlers to understand their dog and how to obtain great results and a deeper relationship with their canine companion.

The club is always looking to learn and explore new techniques and methods to enhance the knowledge that we already understand.  We have a strong ethic of making training fun for the dog and handler.

We have wonderful support from our volunteers, experienced and knowledgeable instructors with a strong club spirit among the members.

Most of our club photos and tutorial videos are posted onto the Facebook site with regular updates from members and committee.   It is a private group so you need to answer 3 questions to be accepted.

Something to remember


The instructors do not receive any monetary benefit. They donate their time to instructing, attending meetings, keeping the club functioning on training days, running trials and assisting with club fundraising activities. They do this because they love their dogs and want to share the benefit of their experience to improve the relationship between other dogs and their handlers.

Our club is successful through the efforts of our volunteers.  Without these people donating their time (even an hour or two) our club would not be able to conduct trials, courses and workshops.  We are very grateful to all volunteers and value their contribution, no matter how small.  If you would like to help, your assistance will be appreciated. 

Money received from membership fees is put back into the club for the upkeep of the facilities, running club trials, courses, workshops, fun days and purchasing training equipment. The majority of membership fees goes directly to Dogs Victoria for insurance and other fees for conducting trials, events and insurance coverage.

The club extends a big thank you to the generous support of our sponsors. Our sponsors provide a variety of services and support for which we are very grateful.



The club offers training in the following disciplines:



Rally Obedience


Track and Search


Scent Work
