Come and join us for an interesting online discussion about our 4-legged friends...
our dogs of course.

Each week we will tackle a different topic, from clicker training to special equipment like wheelchairs for dogs, etc. The group is open to all RDOC members.

Welcome to our new Rainbow Bridge page.

Please feel free to
share your memories of your own special friends who have already crossed over the bridge, and if you have a photograph too, we'd love to see it. Just send it as an  attachment to your email and we'll be pleased to display it with your tribute.

For Kids

RDOC proudly announces the publication of our updated activity book on Dog Safety, "Fido, Friend or Foe?", which is available on our website as a pdf, in both French and English. There are lots of colouring pages that can be printed from the pdf file, as well as important safety information to be aware of when children and dogs are together.

Don't forget to visit the Kids Activity Pages on our website. We have some easy tricks to teach your dog, fun puzzles to solve, pictures to colour and simple crafts.

We also have lots of links for parents about keeping children safe around dogs.


Trick:  Which hand holds the treat?


In addition to the Activity Pages for older kids, we have a new Kids version of our RDOC newsletter suitable for the younger ones.

Read the archived newsletters here too.
