Welcome to Metropolitan Dog Obedience Club Inc.
We've received approval to return to training as of Monday 7th September for existing members!
New members will need to book for Class 1 Introduction from Monday 14th September. Places are limited, so please be patient.
The following conditions have been put in place for the safety of our members and staff:
Everyone attending is asked to download the Australian Government Covid Safe App onto their mobile phone to allow for contact tracing if the need arises.
Members are asked not to attend training if you (or a member of your household):
are unwell with cold or flu-like sypmtoms
have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case of Covid-19
has been interstate or overseas in the past 21 days
Anyone arriving for training with cold, flu or similar symptoms will be asked to leave immediately.
Social distancing will be enforced at all times
One person at a time on the concrete for each queue at the counter at any given time. Please arrive early so that we can allow for the extra time that this style of check-in will take. Volunteer Staff will be on hand to assist and direct people as required.
We are restricted to one handler per dog each training night. Where this is not possible we will require all additional people on the premises to fill in the form provided (at the counter) with their name, address, email & phone number.
We ask that you use cashless transactions where possible.
Please note that the toilets in the Cricket Clubhouse will remain closed and only opened in case of an emergency.
Please ensure that you use the hand sanitiser that is provided and place any & all rubbish in the bins provided.
Come along to Marchant Park, Corner of Gympie & Murphy Road, Chermside, Queensland and have fun training your dog to be a civilized and enjoyable member of your family
Got a problem dog? Ask for help from one of our Instructors. We have trained volunteer instructors who will be able to help you with all of your problems. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to have a pedigreed dog to compete in Obedience competitions and we recommend basic obedience for all Canine Companions.

It's Raining Is Training On?
Normally training sessions are not cancelled due to rain. Marchant Park does not seem to get the same weather you may experience at home. In fact some members call the park a Weather Vortex as it can be raining across the road but be fine on the grounds.
If it has been raining consistently all day or for the past few days training will be cancelled.
While your instructors recommend training in all weather conditions, Warehouse Cricket Association must consider the upkeep of the grounds and a soggy paddock is very easy to damage. In drizzly weather you may need to wear your wet weather gear and remember to bring a towel to rub down your canine companion at the end of the night. Training will continue as normal.
Where possible, cancellations will be posted on the facebook page at
