Warragul & District Kennel & Obedience Club (Warragul Dog Club) is a volunteer-run dog club with over half a century of history.
It is located in Darnum, West Gippsland; just east of Warragul.
Come along. Enjoy a great variety of dog breeds and the unique atmosphere.
WDKOC is well known for its Labour Day AM & PM Conformation dog shows. This event is our calendar highlight.
The Warragul Club has been active in the showing fraternity for over 50 years now.
For more than 20 years, we have delivered Obedience classes for dog owners in the district. These are held weekly, on Sunday mornings.
We also provide training in other disciplines. Our Nosey Business scent class has re-started on the netball courts and a new Agility group has recently graduated from Foundation Agility and now practice in the fenced eastern section of the grounds.
Members sometimes engage in skills practice in Tracking, Rally O and Working Dog activities on site. Many participate in trialling and showing.
Our Obedience approach draws on principles of positive reinforcement for desired behaviours.
Classes focus on developing strong handler-dog teamwork.
We encourage members to keep on learning about dog behaviour, body language and communication.
Committee members and office bearers are voted in at the AGM.
