Welcome to the Southern River Agility & Obedience Dog Club. We operate at Dogs West on the corner of Warton & Ranford Roads in Southern River, Western Australia.
Our club is active in the dog community:
- offering our members’ affordable classes in the disciplines of obedience, agility and rally-O
- conducting obedience, agility and rally-o trials
- conducting demonstrations of obedience, agility and rally-o
- hiring our obedience equipment out to other dog clubs
We welcome both pure-bred and mixed breed dogs. Our classes are suitable for dogs of all ages. The only requirements are that your dog be fully vaccinated and wormed. Please check our timetable and membership pages for information on membership, class availability and times.
We teach using a positive-reinforcement training philosophy, where a reinforcer such as food or a toy is used to reward the dog for the desired behaviour. Training is conducted with the dog on a flat-collar. Haltis and harnesses can be used with the advice of your trainer. Check/choke chains and other correctional collars are not permitted.
We are run by volunteers. Any help that you can give is gratefully received.
