Responsible Dog Owners of Canada - Educational programs

Community - Non-Profit Organization Ontario


RDOC is a registered, non-profit, national organization comprised of volunteers who believe that responsibility, respect and recognition are fundamental components of dog ownership. RDOC programs cover a wide variety of activities from preschool (Fido, Friend or Foe activity book) to seniors (survey of retirement homes pet policies).

We encourage responsible dog ownership in a variety of ways. We run the Canadian Canine Good Citizen (CCGC) testing program and organize clean ups in dog parks.

We have 2 newsletters. The Dog Guardian Newsletter is a quarterly online newsletter dealing with everyday dog ownership issues.
The Kid’s Edition of the Dog Guardian newsletter is a monthly online newsletter devoted to educating children (3 to 8 year olds) on safe interactions with dogs.

The goal of our Fundscrip fundraising campaign is to raise $2,000.00 to run our programs.

Thank you for helping our organization by purchasing gift cards.
