Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment in which our members can train their dogs to be obedient companions, whilst at the same time promoting responsible dog ownership within the community.
We achieve this through providing instructors that offer a wide range of knowledge and experience in canine disciplines and training techniques. This enables members who wish to pursue those competitive dog sports registered with the state's controlling body (Dogs NSW) the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential.
Members not entering competitive sports are able to enjoy a range of activities to assist them in developing a well behaved canine companion whilst at the same time fully enjoying all that owning a dog has to offer.
Please visit our "Membership" page for details.
The club runs puppy classes that include lots of socialising, exposure to a wide variety of sounds, scents and experiences, basic obedience and much more.
For the owners, puppy classes will give advice on raising and caring of the puppy including toilet training, social behaviour and more.
Pups aged between 8 and 16 weeks can attend. Minimum of first vaccination to be sighted. Classes are held on Tuesdays at 7.00pm.
Bookings are essential. Numbers are limited to ensure you and your pup have a good experience. Please contact our training coordinator for bookings and details via the “Contact" page.
