Welcome to our Club!
We are happy to welcome you and your dog to our club and look forward to meeting you!
Below is some information to better assist you when you come to sign up.
To join you must come to the location you wish to train at on the enrolment date, for that month. This is normally the last Sunday of every second month and the last Wednesday of every second month. You do not bring your dog to sign up; you will commence training with your dog the following week.
We would like you to come 30 minutes early to allow time to complete and settle your registration forms and fees so we can make a good start at this session.
On enrolment day, you will need
- to bring the vaccination certificate and microchip details
- fill in membership forms
- pay joining and membership fee.
- join other new starters and hear about our ground rules and training methods.
Our Chief instructor will take you through an induction discussing our Club’s training methods, what equipment you may need and will answer any questions you may have.
Our classes comprise of beginners, then classes going from 1st up to 4th class, as the dog and handler becomes more proficient. While we like to see all our members continue and stay with us, it is up to you, to decide what you want to get out of your training and whilst we see people progressing into advanced classes, we see many members who only wish to get their dog to be more stable and sociable.
Penrith Kennel & Obedience Club Inc accepts the use of most types of properly fitted flat, fixed or slip (check) collars and halties for training purposes. We do not recommend the use of body/ tracking/ sledding/ car harnesses at training as well as chain link leads, as these can make it difficult to safely control your dog whilst on the grounds.
