Hastings & District Obedience Dog Club is a not-for-profit Dog Obedience Club, run by volunteer committee members and instructors.
We offer a range of fantastic activities for you and your dog to become involved in.
We have our Foundation course, designed to introduce both you and your puppy to the foundations of
- Responsible Pet Ownership
- Family dog discipline
Our more advanced Obedience classes for dogs and owners who want to continue to train and be their best.
We also offer Flyball, Agility and Rally-O activities.
The Foundation Class is a four week course that all new members are required to participate in. This course teaches basic dog social skills
and gives members a taste of all dog activities available at Hastings Dog Club.
Sunday 9:30am – 10:15am
From the very basics of ‘sit’ and ‘come’, onwards…. we offer good quality instruction towards a high level of training. Obedience is a good foundation for a well mannered dog and leads to good grounding for other sports.
Intermediate – Sunday 10:15am – 11:00am
Advanced – Sunday 11:00am – 11:45am
This is a sport for the doggies. It appeals to the very core of what it means to be a dog. Running, jumping, catching a ball and super excitement too! Flyball can best be described as a relay race over four jumps whilst retrieving a ball in around 21 seconds for a four dog team! It is a sport in which any dog can participate, though some obedience is required for control in learning.
Team work – Sunday 9:00am – 10:00am
Beginners/Intermediate – Sunday 10:00am – 11:45am
AGILITY / RALLYO
Hastings Dog Club does not actively “teach” these classes with instructors. We do however, have a Rallyo course set up weekly, and from time to time we will also have an Agility course set up that will also be “self-run” so you and your dog can have a try at these activities.
