Welcome to Maitland Dog Obedience Club Inc.

Affiliated with DOGS NSW

It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of one of our Life Members , Brenda Wilson. She was 89 years young and had been suffering with cancer for some years.

Brenda joined the club in 2002 with her Kelpie , Bess. Every Sunday she drove to the club an hour drive from her home in Stroud . Brenda was a real asset to the club, she worked on the Committee, our trials, and was an Instructor for many years. She was awarded Life Member in 2012. Although suffering with cancer Brenda still made a trip to the club just last year to bring donations for the Christmas raffle and to check in on everyone.

Before Brenda came to Australia she was an Air Traffic Controller in England.

Brenda was very community minded and apart from the Dog Club, she was on many Committees including Driver Reviver, and the Rural Fire Brigade. She was not just on the committees but was very active in activities run by the organisations she was a member of such as manning the Driver Reviver Vans and well into her 80s she would be up the mountains or where ever else needed actually fighting the fires.
Brenda had much love for everyone.

Brenda loved her garden, she is now working in God’s Garden.
Rest In Peace, Beautiful Lady, I love you.


Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment in which our members can train their dogs to be obedient companions, whilst at the same time promoting responsible dog ownership within the community.

We achieve this through providing instructors that offer a wide range of knowledge and experience in canine disciplines and training techniques. This enables members who wish to pursue those competitive dog sports registered with the state's controlling body (Dogs NSW) the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential.

Members not entering competitive sports are able to enjoy a range of activities to assist them in developing a well behaved canine companion whilst at the same time fully enjoying all that owning a dog has to offer.
