Membership & Fees
All training classes $90.00 for a term.
You become a member of the club when you sign up and complete a full term of training. Once you have become a member you only need to pay a $20 training fee per term for the remainder of that membership year. Memberships must be renewed in June/July each year. Members please make sure you are familiar with the Rules of our Club.
(Handlers under the age of 16 years must seek prior approval from the appropriate coordinator before registering) As a club we strive to ensure that our handlers can maintain control over their dog at all times while at the training grounds, therefore junior handlers will be assessed on a case by case basis each term.
In order to make your club membership more meaningful, we strongly encourage you to make every effort to involve yourself and your dog in the club activities. Our intentions are to include the interests of all our members and we are always open to new ideas.
Discounted Training Fees
Our members receive discounted class fees throughout the length of their membership year (June/June) from $90 per term to $20 per term. In exchange for this we ask every member contributes their time to the club where possible, through volunteering at our annual shows or helping at working bees.
Classes and Shows
We are required by Dogs NZ to hold annual obedience and agility shows in order to provide group classes to the local community. For these shows to be successful we require our members help. The shows are also a great way of meeting like-minded people and seeing some of New Zealand’s top obedience and agility competitors. Please ask your instructor how you can help at our next show.
