Sydney All Breeds Dog Training Club (SABDTC) is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit dog training club based in Sydney's inner west.
We promote training programmes that assist in developing obedient and happy dogs which will be a source of pleasure and pride to your family and good canine citizens in their community.
Obedience training classes
We offer instruction in basic dog obedience training, as well as class opportunities for you to practise and socialise your dog. Our Instructors will help you teach your dog behaviours such as come when called and how to walk on a loose lead.
We teach you the steps required to teach a behaviour then it's up to you to work with your dog during the week. The more often you practise, the faster your dog learns.
We also encourage those who are interested to try competition obedience - a precision sport where handlers and their dog perform a standard series of exercises. There are many levels in obedience trials, beginning with Community Companion Dog (CCD) up to the challenging Utility Dog (UD) classes.
We are affiliated with Dogs NSW and run two official Trials each year. These are a great place for Club members to start out (home ground advantage!) or just to come along and watch.
Our training methods
At SABDTC, we use positive reward-based training methods. That is, we encourage the use of food treats or toys to help keep your dog motivated.
All dogs and handlers are different so the time it takes to reach individual training goals varies. Factors include your patience, consistency and timing.
