A summary of the Club Rules is provided in the Ground Rules & Information on the Club Facilities form given to new members when joining the Club (PDF copy available from the Forms/Flyers page). The Ground Rules are also reprinted regularly in the Club newsletter.

In addition, the operation of the Club is governed by the Rules & Constitution of the Eastern Suburbs Dog Training Club, a copy of which is available on the Training Grounds on Sundays or can be downloaded here.

The following summarises the Club Ground Rules (updated February 2008):

  • Training Times: the scheduled start and end times are listed in the Training Times page on the Club website. 
  • Dogs MUST be on lead at all times
  • Name badges must be worn. Replacements for lost badges will be issued for a $2 donation
  • Access to roped off area surrounding trailer is restricted to Committee, Instructors and Helpers

  • Puppies and adult dogs must have a collar and lead for training - not an extendable lead. A harness is permissible, but the goal will be to work towards using a collar and lead for training in the Advanced Classes (harnesses cannot be used in Promotion Tests).
  • All dogs must be fully vaccinated - a current vaccination certificate must be provided when joining the Club and renewing membership
