Benefits of Joining

Why join?

The Club provides members with training, advice, support and education in responsible dog ownership, socialisation and canine welfare. Our experienced instructors help dog owners with:

  • basic and advanced levels of dog obedience
  • advice on canine health eg. ticks, flea control, vaccination
  • all aspects of dog laws and the Companion Animals Act 1998 (NSW)
  • general well-being of your dog eg grooming, feeding
  • some dog behavioural problems

Why pets are good for you:

  • Pets help reduce stress and associated diseases, saving Australia some $2 billion a year in medical costs, according to the Petcare Information & Advisory Service.
  • For the workaholics and couch potatoes, a dog will force them to take a break and get some exercise.
  • Animals make great icebreakers, as they are often a catalyst for meeting new people.
  • Pets give you unconditional love.
  • A bad day in the office very often dissolves when there is an exuberant pet awaiting your arrival when you return home.

Dogs teach us to:

  • Find joy in being able to play, run and jump.
  • Always be happy about getting a treat.
  • Play more …. Worry less.
  • Accept that winning is not everything in life
  • Realise the size of the heart is more important than the size of the body.
  • Realise you don’t have to be rich, or famous or powerful to be loved.
  • Remember it never hurts to smile.
  • Remember being kind is more important than being important.
  • Take time to enjoy the smells, sounds and sights around us.
