He was drafted with the 51st selection in the 2003 AFL Rookie Draft whilst playing with East Fremantle. After being elevated from the rookie list for the 2004 season, he made his AFL debut against Geelong in Round 20 of 2004, when Fremantle were defeated by Geelong by 50 points on one of the coldest days of football in recent times. He was reported for engaging in a melee and was fined $1500.[1]

In October 2010, Dodd was delisted by Fremantle after 101 games over seven seasons with the Dockers.[4] He is the cousin of former Fremantle player Brad Dodd.
