Saturday November 28th 2020 is our last full training day for the year.
Due to COVID Restrictions we are not able to hold the usual Christmas Party, but suggest members may wish to dress themselves or their dogs in a Christmas theme.
Some Awards will also be presented at 3pm, but Agility and Obedience Dog of the Year Awards and Excellence in Trialling Awards will be postponed until 2021, due to the lack of competition throughout 2020.
There was only one KK9 Testing Day in 2020 and the successful participants received their certificates and leads on that day.
A limited number of young puppies have been enrolled for the Evening December and January Puppy Classes and a few existing members with new dogs have been able to attend existing classes.
We look forward to being able to enrol all New Members with puppies and older dogs again from February 2021.
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.

Welcome to the Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club (NSDTC).
Welcome to Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club inc.
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 attainment of the Kuring-gai Canine Award and competition in a number of dog sports.
Our qualified instructors provide classes in advanced obedience, agility, Rally-O, 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.
