New Member Orientation meetings are held 4 times a year.  Learn how to become a member of our club. The meetings are held at the Richmond Dog Obedience Club. For meeting dates call RDOC at (804)278-9032.

We encourage our trainees to become club members. This process  includes several participation requirements but provides a great opportunity to meet a variety of club members and gain a greater appreciation for how the club functions
