No, only members can join the classes. We encourage all prospective members to come along on a training Sunday to watch the classes in action and ask volunteers questions.

Registration for membership is completed online under the tab Membership. Click on Join or Renew.

Under the Membership tab on the website, there is a drop-down box with all the categories and the cost for each category. Included in the amount is a joining fee for all new or relapsed membership types. Renewals do not have the Joining Fee attached.

Your membership lasts for 12 months from either your joining date or the date of renewal.

An up-to-date vaccination certificate for all dogs in a membership and pension or senior card for pensioner/senior or dual pensioner/senior memberships are uploaded. Only the extensions jpg, jpeg, gif or png are accepted. 

You are trying to upload a scanned pdf file which is not accepted. Only photos or screenshots are able to be uploaded.

All Junior members are aged between 10 and 16 years of age. All dependants on Family memberships must be 10+ years of age. A birth certificate copy must be uploaded for Junior memberships and date of birth for dependants between 10 and 16 years of age to be added.

All dogs must be at least 16 weeks of age to participate in the club's activities and classes.

To upload a vaccination certificate or card, take a photo and save it to the device you are using to register. There is a + sign in the spot where the certificate/card needs to be uploaded. Click on the + sign and find the saved photo on the device. Click on the photo.

Yes, all dogs must be fully vaccinated with the C3 and kennel cough vaccines to join and maintain membership. Upon joining and each annual anniversary date, you are required to upload an up-to-date dog vaccination certificate for each dog in your membership. The uploaded file should clearly show the type and date of vaccination.

The dog must be vaccinated with C4 (minimum), C5 (preferred) or higher. Titer testing is accepted by the club.

Up-to-date vaccinations must be uploaded at each renewal date for checking by an administrator.

N.B. Some vets give a triennial C3 vaccine but kennel cough is given annually.

As from 1st September 2024 C5 will be the minimum vaccination accepted.

A handler must be a member of KODC. A team has one registered handler and one registered dog. Each team in a Membership is a separate team from other teams in the same Membership and each team is tested separately to advance to the next level.

Family and Dual Pensioner/Senior Memberships have multiple members. The first person to register their details is the Primary member. After payment the other persons within that membership will add their details, including the dog's details (again), vaccination certificate and, if required, pensioner/senior card. 

The name of the handler and the name of the dog/s within that handler's team/s. Later the class colour is added for each team.

Membership badges will be available for collection from a table inside the clubhouse on the first training Sunday from 9:30am. On all other weeks, you can find them on a wall rack next to the Dog Shop within the clubhouse.

 If you lose your membership badge, please approach the Membership Secretary within the clubhouse on any normal training Sunday. They will assist you in arranging a replacement badge.

To change memberships by adding members (small charge applies) or dogs (free) to a membership see the Membership helpers in the clubhouse (this may change in due course). Have documents to be uploaded available.

The memberships are constantly monitored by administrators. Your account will normally be unlocked within 24 hours and you will be contacted by email with your current username and a new generic password. Once you have successfully logged in you can change the password.

You must log in to the website with your username and password to access members only content. The manuals will then be available by clicking on the Training tab and Obedience.

Members will receive a reminder to renew their memberships for another 12 months. The starting date of that year will be the last date of the first year. Member details are corrected, if needed, and up-to-date vaccination certificates are uploaded. New membership badges are collected.

Email Membership@knoxodc.org.au any time or see a membership volunteer in the clubhouse after 9am on a training Sunday. Email response will usually take less than 24 hours.

If you have any other questions or need further assistance, feel free to reach out to the club's Membership Secretary or any other committee members. We hope you and your dog enjoy your time at our club and have a wonderful training experience!
