BENDIGO OBEDIENCE DOG CLUB

NEWS & EVENTS

 

 page updated: 10 February 2022


Sunday morning members. We have posted a list of requirements for each class that you will need to meet in order to graduate to the next class. We will also go through these in detail before the class so you are clear on the criteria.

Some people may not be happy with not graduating, but the instructor judges your handling skills as well as your ability to cope with the step up into the next class. We can't put you into a class where you will struggle as we don't like to set people up to fail. It's about understanding what, why and how you handle the dog. If you don't understand the process then you will really start to struggle as the dog starts working off lead.

This year we have set graduation assessment days which are listed on our web site training dates. Graduations will be conducted during the course of a routine training session so you shouldn't feel any performance pressure. There are registration sheets in the clubhouse and all those handlers that feel they are ready to graduate must register. This will ensure that no-one misses out on graduation certificates because of an oversight.
