Training our trainers

The club has organised for some of our trainers to attend recent seminars. 

Peta Clarke Seminar - Tara, Samantha, Scott and Leonie attended Peta Clarkes recent noseworks seminar on topics of Positive Reinforcement, Behaviour Therapy, Beginner & Advanced Noseworks and Free Shaping. 

Sara Brueske Seminar - Samantha, Scott and Leonie also attended Sara Brueske seminar in November on the topics of Clear Communication Skills, Sport Foundation Behaviours, Tricks and Bomb Proof Behaviours.

I thank our volunteer trainers for giving up their weekend time to learn about new methods of training our dogs. 



Change of name - BDTC - Brisbane Dog Training Club Inc

You may have noticed some changes on our website and Facebook page. We are now the club formerly known as ODCB! Our new name - Brisbane Dog Training Club Inc, or BDTC for short, has been chosen by the club committee to better reflect the services and support that the club provides to our members. We hope you like it!


Ground Lighting Upgrade to LED with assistance from Gambling Community Fund 

Replacing the lighting enabled us to continue running evening classes and Agility and Obedience Trials especially during the summer months when it is often too hot to do so during the day.  The old lighting was put up in the 1970's and was starting to fail, was expensive to run and below standard lighting levels for Agility Competition.  After we were successful with the grant application one of the power poles fell over into our big gum tree - not great timing but it encouraged us to get moving on the project.  Many thanks to the small hard working team that got the job done - Murray worked the lighting plan over many many times until we were happy with the design and Kevin our groundsman overseeing the underground cabling so that we don't have to worry about trees falling on cables.  Chris de Jong our electrician was very patient with us, Logan Power Poles were great to work with and Tiger Lighsts supplied the LED's.
