OPeterborough And District Obedience ClubO


The Peterborough And District Obedience Club is a non-profit organization and has been active for over 50 years. We are affilated with the Canadian Kennel Club and annually we host  CKC Obedience and Rally Trials.

Here at Peterborough And District Obedience Club (PADOC) we use positive training methods only and train you how to train your puppy/dog.  Our trainers have a wealth of experience working with different breeds, understanding that every breed and every dog has a unique personality and disposition

We offer classes for  all levels in Obedience and Rally Obedience as well as puppy FUNdamentals. Obedience classes run for 8 weeks  and are 45 minuties to 1 hour in length. 


                For a full class descriptions see our Classes/Schedule page.


P A D O C (as we are affectionately known)  makes every effort to ensure that its instructors are up-to-date with the latest studies and trends in dog training.   The money collected from our classes is used to educate our members through seminars and conferences.

PADOC is proud to offer:  


**Due to the Ontario province wide shut down and stay-at-home order starting April 8, 2021, PADOC will not be running any classes UNTIL AT LEAST MAY OR JUNE 2021. In addition, we have cancelled our 2021 Obedience and Rally Obedience Trail until May 2022.

We will update here and on our Facebook Page when we plan to have classes starting. We know that this is a difficult time for everyone - for individual training questions and to ask for training recommendations, please reach out using the contact page. Please stay safe and continue to have fun with your dogs!**
