Welcome to the Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club (NSDTC).
We are an affiliate of Dogs NSW and have been operating in Ku-ring-gai since 1967.
Our experienced team of dedicated volunteers are here to educate members on responsible dog ownership and help them train their dogs to be well-behaved, socialised companions, who are a pleasure for their owners and fit well into the community.
We cater for all breeds and cross-breeds. Vaccinated puppies can commence class from four months.
Our classes are designed to build a bond between owner and dog using positive training methods and start with basic obedience.
Members can progress to the attainment of the Ku-ring-gai Canine Award and competition in a number of dog sports.
Our qualified instructors provide classes in advanced obedience, agility, Rally, gundog training, dances with dogs and tricks.
Members may also participate in educational seminars on diverse topics related to dog behaviour or health, which are run several times a year.
Come and join fellow dog owners for some fun, education and exercise with us here at Northern Suburbs.

Rally and RATG Trial – Sat 9 Jan 2021
Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club is pleased to announce today (5.1.21) that our evening Rally & RATG trial will be going ahead on Saturday 9th January 2021, assuming there are no last-minute restrictions imposed between now & then.
Please note that this trial will be held under strict COVID rules & Club officials will be enforcing these.
Whilst not compulsory, the trial committee would greatly appreciate if everyone on the grounds wear a mask where possible, particularly during check-in, Rally walk-throughs or if entering the clubhouse.
Check-in will be conducted at each ring and you will be asked to confirm your phone number on our COVID tracing sheets. We have also just been issued with a NSDTC QR Code from Service NSW, and we would ask that you also scan the code & log in where possible.
We are restricting the number of people on the grounds during the trial and therefore ask that you DO NOT bring any family members, friends, supporters, or spectators with you. Anyone not listed in the catalogue or on our contact tracing sheets will be asked to leave.
PLEASE NOTE that all exhibitors are required to provide their own exhibitor cards & RATG competitors must present their dummy in a zip-lock plastic bag. Rally walk-throughs are limited to a maximum of 20 competitors. Rally competitors (except Rally Novice) when removing their dog’s lead, must keep the lead on their person whilst in the ring.
No refreshments will be provided for exhibitors – please bring your own food & drink.
Thanks so much,
Agility classes have been back in action since mid July. Due to COVID-Safety requirements, class members must register their intent to participate prior to the class so that we can manage class numbers. This is either a reply to Jennifer Hamilton’s email re Saturday training or a reply to Allison Harvey’s Monday Night Agility Facebook poll.
On arrival to training, you must sign the sheet next to your contact details confirming attendance, health status, and no travel or COVID contact risk.
A signed COVID-19 Protocol Agreement must be submitted (only once) prior to your first training session.
Obedience Training (Nov 2020)
Our wonderful Obedience Instructors at NSDTC have continued to work very hard to have obedience training back up and running. In the month of September alone 120 people attended our afternoon obedience classes and 319 lessons were offered.
We are thrilled that our Puppy Class has been offered by Eve Park and Julian Williams and it is now full. We do have a waiting list and if you wish to join our new member’s puppy class in February 2021 please call Eve Park on 94491941.
For new and returning members coming in 2021 the first day of training will be 6.2.2021. Please join on line.
We are looking forward to meeting new members for the new training year.
