North Shore Dog Training Club Inc. ('Club') was founded in October 1976. Since then, our membership has grown rapidly to become one of the largest obedience and agility clubs in the Auckland region, with well over 300 people a year attending classes. Our goal is to help dogs and their owners get the utmost from their time together, whilst emphasising responsible dog ownership. Tuition starts with classes to suit your new family pet progressing through to competition level in various different dog sports. Many of these disciplines aim towards competition and / or qualifying certificates, like the nationally recognised Canine Good Citizen awards.
The Club continues to keep its level of instruction to the highest standard. The combined knowledge of our instructors means we have a wealth of experience in all facets of dog training and handling. Each of the disciplines trained at the club has its own co-ordinator and the latest practices in training continue to be developed within our volunteer instructor network. We're extremely proud to have some of our members regularly featuring among the top placegetters at shows all around the country.
The club has equipment for at least two complete agility rings and several obedience rings. We have the latest in electronic timing equipment and all gear is maintained to NZKC fitness certification standards.
Clubroom facitilities for members include:
free tea & coffee
a well stocked shop with a good range of great value dog related items
a lending library of dog training materials (DVD's & books)
