Agility Training

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 (Oct 2020)

Our wonderful Instructors at NSDTC have continued to work very hard to have obedience training back.

Stage 1-3 has been achieved with first class on 19th September taking in 40 dogs. Well done to our  Instructors handling the large number of members returning to first class. It is lovely to see the club running all other classes as planned from 1st up to Advanced skills and beyond.

Stage 4 continues with large number of returning members. We are delighted to offer a new members puppy class for our stage 4 return.

  • Puppies need to be six months and under at the time of the class in December
  • That means that puppies will be born no earlier than June 2020 and be six months or younger on December 1st
  • Two of our best Puppy Class Instructors Eve Park and Julian Williams will be working over the usual Obedience break and offering two Wednesday evening classes before Christmas and two classes in the new year
  • Please call Eve to book in as numbers are limited to twenty places. Eve can be contacted on 94491941.

All further inquiries regarding information about classes within NSDTC can be emailed to me via our website or you can call Ginny on 94891554.

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.

Happy training!

Barbara Rogleff, President
Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club
