Our club has a dual purpose: To provide pet dog training and to provide trial opportunities.

Sponsored by


The Canine Obedience Club of Townsville Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation providing basic, intermediate, and advanced obedience training as well as trialling in Obedience, Rally, Tricks, Agility, Scentwork, Tracking, and Track and Search.

All Committee Members, Instructors and helpers are volunteers, giving their time freely to help dog owners train their dog. 

The club pursues a positive community image through promotion of all facets of the function and activities of the club. Learning must be as much fun for both you and your dog as it is for us! 

Our programs are developed around "reward based" training. This makes learning a happy time and helps to build confidence in your dog. 

Learn how to understand the basics of dog behaviour and responsible pet dog ownership so that your dog can look forward to a "forever" home with you.


Cancellation of classes due to adverse weather will be emailed by 4.00pm on training night and posted on Facebook. If you are not receiving club emails, please email the Secretary to add your email address.


Council laws require that dog owners carry poo bags with them at all times when out with their canine companions.


Please do not approach any dogs that are crated, tethered or who are wearing a Yellow Ribbon. These dogs need a little more space than others, and the bright yellow ribbon is your warning to give these dogs some room.


Stuck for a Lead? We have a range of leads, collars and club clothing at competitive prices. See the ladies at the clubhouse for sizes and prices.


Thinking of trialling? Our Management Committee or Instructors will be able to point you in the right direction.
