AWL NSW Narooma Dog Training Club

PO Box 322 Narooma NSW 2546
Chief Instructor: Kathryn McKellar
Secretary: Carol Hellmers – 0458 953 281

About our Club

Narooma Dog Training Club (NDTC) was founded by the late Yvonne Robinson (local Narooma resident and life member of AWL NSW) and has been operating in the Eurobodalla Shire for more than 15 years.

Under the expert eye of NDTC Chief Instructor and using positive training methods, dog owners attend group classes and learn to be responsible and competent pet dog handlers. Puppies and dogs of all ages and breeds acquire good manners, socialise with other dogs and importantly and how to socialise with us humans. There are promotion days and award opportunities throughout the year, plus competitions and end-of-year trophies to be won. Agility and Rally Obedience are other training disciplines to be enjoyed. NDTC also holds a Dog Christmas Party with games, prizes, fancy dress and treats for everyone – it is all great fun!

Our Instructors

All instructors are dedicated AWL NSW volunteers. They are experienced handlers who have completed obedience training to CCD level, some with more than one dog. Several have owned, cared for, and rehabilitated dogs so they know the difficulties that pet dog owners can face. Our instructors are on-hand each week to give advice and assistance as part of the training program.

Value for Money

Narooma Dog Training Club runs dog obedience and agility training programs throughout the year at a very reasonable cost. The fee for new handlers wishing to register for Basic Handling Skills is $50 for a 2 month program, plus a weekly ground fee of $5 is payable. Class size is limited to 12 handlers only. Once this program is completed, new handlers are welcome to continue for the remainder of the calendar year. The weekly ground fee of $5 applies to all classes attended.

For handlers who continue with Narooma Dog Training Club after this first calendar year, the annual registration fees are reduced to:

  • $25 Concession for Youth under 18 and Pensioner/Disability card holders.
  • $40 Single Adult.
  • $60 Family (any combination).
  • The weekly ground fee of $5 is payable for each session attended.
  • Half yearly fees available from 1 August.
Any dog, regardless of age or breed, that has been rehomed from any Animal Welfare League NSW Branch will receive FREE registration for one calendar year. $5 weekly ground fee is still payable for each session attended.
Please wear comfortable, closed-in shoes. You will also need to bring dog-waste bags, a water bowl and some yummy treats for your dog as a reward for a job well done! Once registered, there is a wealth of advice on tap from our experienced volunteer Instructors.
