Have Fun With Your Dog...
TAUPO DOG TRAINING CLUB is an associated All Breeds
Society of Dogs NZ, and approved to conduct Championship Shows in Obedience and
Agility. You don’t have to be competitive, just to have a love of dogs and be
prepared to put in the time for practice.
The Objects of The Club Are:
To help local owners train their dogs in basic obedience.
To promote the sport of dog training by conducting classes at different levels within the different codes, i.e. Obedience, Canine Good Citizen, Rally-O, & Agility.
Basic Obedience Class. Any dog? YES. ? All breeds are welcome from 5 months of age. (Puppy classes are held for puppies aged 12 weeks to 5 months subject to availability of instructors.)
Who Trains The Dog?
You do, within class and at least five times a week between classes. You need only to train for a few minutes each time but it must be regular. If you are not prepared to do this then you won't get the results.
2018 OBEDIENCE TERM DATES
Term 2 - Tuesday 1st May - 10th July 2018
Term 3 - Tuesday 25th September - 4th December 2018
We don't align our
obedience training terms with the school terms and there are only three
terms so that we can have a break through the heart of winter mid-July
through to mid-September when it is cold and miserable and not a good time for
any effective outside training. But that doesn't mean that you don't keep up
with your training at home and remember your instructors are only a phone call
or email away if you need help.
The first night of each term is always a registration night from 6-6.30pm in which you come along without your dog. You need to bring along your dogs council registration number and vet certificate and we get you sorted and into a class. You will meet your instructors on your first night of training and are familiarised with what will be going on through the rest of the term.
