NOSA is also a competition club, and stages several obedience trials a year.


    NOSA is a member of the Association of Island Obedience Clubs (AIOC) — an alliance of 10 dog obedience clubs on Vancouver Island, from Victoria to Campbell River.

    NOSA offers two AIOC trials annually, hosted in conjunction with the Greater Victoria Dog Obedience Training Club. For the past few years, Rally Obedience trials have been offered at this same event. These AIOC trials give competitors the opportunity to earn two passes in a single day in Obedience and in Rally-Obedience. Our next AIOC club trial dates are:

    • March 21, 2020 at the RCMP Barn, Saanich Fairgrounds.  Judges are to be determined. Cancelled due to the Covid-19 crisis.
    • October 18, 2020 at the RCMP Barn, Saanich Fairgrounds. Judges are to be determined.
