Dog Training Club


Upper Hutt

Welcome to your family friendly dog training club based in Upper Hutt.

Our introductory programme is Canine Good Basics. This class helps you develop your dog into a great companion who is 

  • easy to live with, 
  • calm when required, 
  • well behaved wherever you take them, and
  • focusses on you and what you want him/her to do.

Once you and your dog have mastered the skills required, you can go on to have more fun with your dog learning more complex skills such as Rally O, Agility, Flygility, Obedience, Nosework and Canine good Citizen.

Canine Good Basics is held on Tuesday nights at 7.30pm.

This class is suitable for all dogs aged 5 months and above.

Each term lasts 6 weeks.

It costs $70/term. This includes tuition, a clicker and the DogsNZ Canine good Basics assessment and certificate.

March course full  -  enrollments open for the course starting on 25th May 2021

What do we do?

This class helps you develop your dog into a great companion who is easy to live with, calm when required, well behaved wherever you take them, and focused on you and what you want him/her to do.

The skills we want the dogs to learn are:-
  • Responds immediately and happily to their name
  • takes food nicely
  • Is happy and willing to walk beside you, 
  • Will come when you call them. 
  • They will enjoy being patted by others, and groomed/handled by you
  • they will willingly sit, down and stay when you ask them to 

all of which are useful for family life as well as any dog sport you may want to do later.
