CDODC is run entirely by volunteers, and it is for this reason we are able to keep our training fees so low.

The typical cost for one handler and one dog to join CDODC is $100 for the first year, and $70 for each subsequent year of continued membership. Discounts are offered for Dogs Victoria members and concession card holders. Additional handlers may be added to a membership for $20 at time of sign up, or $30 at a later date. CDODC has no ongoing weekly fees.

It is essential that all family members who intend to train the dog at CDODC are members of the club for insurance purposes. If you would like someone else to train your dog when you are sick or otherwise unavailable, please complete their membership application online prior to their arrival at the club.

Please note: Croydon Dog Club emphasises that dog training classes are about developing a bond between owner and dog. Unless exceptional circumstances apply, the person handling the dog in class should remain the same throughout the duration of the class. You may not swap your dog from person to person while class is in session.

The following discounts may apply to you:

  • $10 discount for Dogs Victoria members;
  • $20 discount for individuals who hold government-issued concession cards (i.e., pensioner and/or health care cards); and
  • $30 discount for CDODC volunteers.


We accept payment via credit card or PayPal, using the enrolment process available on our website. In limited circumstances, bank transfer is also accepted.

Disclaimer: Prices are current for the 2022/2023 financial year.  CDODC reserves the right to amend its fees from time to time, as necessary for the needs of the club.

New memberships are valid from the date of joining until 31 March of the following year.

Ongoing members must renew their membership by 31 March. Membership will then remain current from 1 April to 31 March of the following year.

Memberships cannot be transferred or refunded except in accordance with applicable laws.
