The Canine Good Basics class helps you develop your dog into a great companion who is easy to live with, calm when required, well behaved wherever you take him/ her, and focused on you and what you want him/her to do. This class is suitable for all dogs aged 5 months and above.
Canine Good Basics (CGB) is held on Tuesdays at 7.30 p.m. Each term, classes run for 6 weeks, with a two-week break in between terms. The club closes for two months in the winter (July/ August). Classes cost $70 for non-club members. The class tuition includes a clicker and the DogsNZ Canine Good Basics assessment and certificate. See the Fees and Payment page for more information.

Canine Good Basics Assessment: The aim of the Dogs New Zealand CGB is to provide a relatively simple test to encourage more people to participate and which can be undertaken as an assessment within a normal class or club situation. The assessment is intended as a stepping stone towards Canine Good Citizen and is based around goals already commonly developed in basic dog and puppy classes.
Eligible dogs: Any puppy over the age of 6 months and any adult dog of any breed.
