The Dumbbell Obedience Club goals are to encourage dog owners to explore, enjoy, compete and promote a variety of dog sports, particularly at this time, Obedience, Rally Obedience & Scent Work. We hope to give members and other dog sport enthusiasts opportunities to practice skills and prepare for competition by putting on a variety of fun matches, trials, seminars and Canine Good Neighbour tests. Recently the club has added opportunities to test for the Do More With Your Dog Trick Dog Titles.
