The South Australian Obedience Dog Club was founded in 1955 by the late Harold Camm, a longtime instructor with the German Shepherd Dog League, who was concerned that training was not available anywhere at that time to cater for all breeds of dogs.

S.A.O.D.C. was established as the first all-breeds dog training club to serve Adelaide and the surrounding community, it has done this continuously and successfully ever since, an achievement and history of which we are very proud.

In those early years, the late Nelson Gare gained South Australia's first Australian Obedience Championship in 1964 with his Boxer, Boxendale Bold Beau, the first of many such honours since achieved by S.A.O.D.C. Members, several of whom have shared their experience and skills with us as Instructors.

S.A.O.D.C. accepts all breeds and cross breeds for training, is affiliated with the South Australian Canine Association (Dogs SA) and is bound by their rules and regulations.
The club enjoys a good working relationship with our governing body, and with other Dog Obedience clubs operating under their 'umbrella', as well as with the Adelaide City Council in whose parklands our Clubrooms and grounds are situated.
