Dover Dog Club

                The club welcomes new members in any week of the training year
       which runs from the first Sunday in February to the last Sunday in November.

       with Puppy Kindy classes reconvening in the third week of January, unaffected
       by the Hot Weather policy as they're conducted in the air-conditioned clubrooms...

       At the beginning of each training year, the Sunday morning prior to classes
       recommencing is set aside for new enrolments & re-enrolments, so members
       can then go straight into class the following week without missing class time
       while attending to paperwork.  We encourage everyone to take advantage of
       this opportunity which simplifies the first week of training for instructors and
       committee as well as members, and helps allocate & administer classes.
You will need to bring your dog's current Veterinary vaccination certificate,
       and the appropriate sum of money (see below) in the form of cash or a cheque,
       as the club doesn't at this stage offer credit card facilities.

       Newcomers are invited to come along and watch classes before deciding if our
       approach and time-table suits their needs.
       New enrolments for dogs over 16 weeks of age are taken on Sunday mornings
       & Wednesday evenings.

         Enrolments for Puppy Kindy (pups aged 8-16 weeks) are also taken on Tuesday nights
