Training Information & Key Dates

In 2022, each level of training class has been assigned a level number in addition to the traditional colour association they are as follows:

Session 1 includes Levels 1 through to 4 and the Agility Taster Course.

Session 2 includes Levels 5 through Pink Open.

 

TRAINING REMINDERS:

  • No Dogs whatsoever are allowed near the clubhouse while checking in, The check in process is a human only experience. (The only except to this rule is for those volunteers who are working in the office that week those dogs must be crated)

  • The ADC is committed to being a safe place for our members and their dogs. The club has set in place policies and procedures to ensure this. The ADC bases these policies and procedures on the following Dogs NSW policies: Code of Ethics, Aggressive Dogs and Bullying Prevention and Guidelines amongst others. The ADC will enforce these procedures when required to ensure the safety and well being of all club members and their dogs. A copy of these documents can be found on the Key Documents Page of this website. 

  • Volunteering at the ADC:

The ADC is a club completely run by and for its members, during your membership renewal or signup you indicated how and where you would be willing to volunteer at the ADC for the coming year. So for 2022 we will be trying something new, we will be utilising this data to spread the volunteer load across the entire club, thereby ensuring that all our members get an opportunity to contribute to the club but in a bite size way! Many hands make light work! So be on the lookout over the coming weeks for requests coming via Facebook or email from our various subcommittees who will be helping you to help the club! We thank you in advance for this much needed help.

  • Assessment and progression through the levels: Levels 1 thru 4 are now a set 8 week program. There are no longer checklists to be marked off, we now have an assessment night that falls on week 8 of each course, there is no longer a “fast tracking” through the levels. For any reason should you not pass on week 8 you will be re assessed again at week 4. 

  • Wet weather: wet weather will put a pause on all training curriculum across all grades for example

    • Week 1 is sunny and we train as per normal - (week 1 of curriculum)

    • Week 2 is sunny and we train as per normal (week 2 of curriculum)

    • Week 3 however training is canceled due to poor weather 

    • Week 4  is sunny and we train as per normal (week 3 of curriculum) 

And so on and so forth, so grade 1 through 4 will complete their 8 weeks and grade 5 (purple)  will complete their 12 weeks.
