It can be mentally stimulating for both the dog and the handler, TDTC runs a DogsNZ Competition Obedience show; check out our events calendar for details.

Canine Good Citizen Assessments

The Canine Good Citizen program brings a dog and its handler up to a gold standard of behaviour for dogs in our communities. DogsNZ assessment for CGC evaluates dogs in a relaxed testing environment where a dog can work through Foundation, Bronze, Silver and then through to Gold. Here at TDTC, we run up to two assessments per year; if you are interested in joining our CGC class or checking Assessment dates, see our calendar. 

Agility Shows

Challenging the dog and the handler, the sport of Agility requires you to work as a team to negotiate a series of obstacles as fast as you can.
