Upper Hutt Dog Training Club

Welcome to your family friendly dog training club 

About Us

We are a family friendly club offering many different ways to have fun with your dog. Our aim is to enjoy being with our dogs, to learn new things, and enjoy each others company while we do it. We like to help each other, and to celebrate  success  - from being able to call your dog back to you in the park to winning National events. 

What we offer

Our introductory programme is Canine Good Basics. This class helps you develop your dog into a great companion who is:
  1. Easy to live with.
  2. Calm when required.
  3. Well behaved wherever you take him/her.
  4. Focusses on you and what you want him/her to do.

Once you have passed Canine Good Basics (CGB) you and your dog can join our Dog Manners class. You and your dog can learn even more complex skills by joining Rally O, Agility, Flygility, and Competitive Obedience classes.
