Welcome to the Hamilton Dog Obedience Club website. We are a volunteer organization that has been helping people train their dogs for over 60 years. Our obedience and agility training classes focus on positive reinforcement methods. Hamilton Dog Obedience Club offers a positive and fun training environment for you and your dog. We offer everything from puppy classes as early as 3 months to advanced obedience and agility classes, to two CKC Obedience Trials, a CKC agility trial and now even Rally Obedience trials annually. Visit our links for information on obedience and agility classes.

The situation in Ontario regarding COVID-19 is rapidly changing and the Hamilton Dog Obedience Club has decided to cancel the 2020 spring training session.

July 2020 Agility Trials Cancelled
It is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of this year's agility trials in July. We have no ability to predict when Covid restrictions will begin to lift, and many people have no place to train their dogs. Dogs lacking proper conditioning can be more prone to injury and we want to keep you and your dogs as safe as possible through these trying times. Observe the restrictions, enjoy the company of your furkidz and keep them, and you , healthy and safe!
