Membership fee changes - people with disabilities now pay the same discounted rate as seniors and full time students, i.e. $10. The special membership discount for volunteers has been discontinued.


Please note that from November 1, 2019, our Membership fees increased slightly to help cover the cost of our educational programs.

The new fee schedule is as follows:
Corporate membership:  $60
Single / family membership:  $25
Senior / disabled persons / full time
   student membership:  $15
Non-profit groups:  $35


Please remember to check for cats or other animals hiding under the hood, or in the wheel arches of your car!

Make noise, bang on the hood, slam the car doors, and honk your horn for good measure before you start up your engine!

And give the animal a little extra time to escape - it may be caught in a tight space.

Thank You!

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, and pictures to colour.

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.

Every year, in Spring & Fall, we hold Park Clean-Up Days in Ottawa area dog parks. During the morning we hand out bags & gloves to dog owners, who are the ones who do all the work picking up the garbage etc. Their reward is a much cleaner park, & their pups get dog cookies. Thank you to everybody who participates in these events.


RDOC would like to thank The Pet Shoppe (4772 Bank St, Unit 3A, in Findlay Creek) for donating dog cookies and poop bags for our Park Clean-Up events.  

We would also like to thank the City of Ottawa GLAD Cleaning the Capital Campaign for donating garbage bags and gloves. Our dogs are very grateful
