What Classes Are We Wanting and When??

Hi Everyone,

All members are invited to a meeting in the Rotorua Dog Obedience clubrooms on Tuesday 12th June at 6.00pm to discuss and plan what classes our members are wanting run over the next 12 months and planning to ensure the programme is targeted to members needs and sustainable.

We would like as much input as we can from all of our members and our trainers. We would also like to hear from anyone who is interested in helping with running classes by either taking a class or being the support person to assist a trainer with their class.

Classes we are thinking of holding are:

  • Pet Dog basic obedience,
  • Canine Good Citizen Basic ( follow on from Pet Dog),
  • Canine Good Citizen Bronze/Silver/Gold
  • Noseworx,( Teaching dogs to search for smells)
  • Tricks Training
  •  Agility Foundation
  • Agility Starters, Agility Senior
  •   Rally-O,
  •  Competition Obedience

We would love to see everyone at our meeting, but if you cannot make it, for planning purposes,  please email me with what classes you would like to participate in over the next 12 months.
My email is josteve@hotmail.co.nz

Regards,
Jo Klein, President Rotorua Dog Obedience Club.

  • Basic Obedience Basic Obedience We provide training and handling skills for dog owners who wish to have well socialised, well behaved and well trained dogs. Owners will gain more control over their dog with basic obedience and socialisation.
  • Canine Good Citizen Canine Good Citizen The emphasis with CGC is to ensure that your dog will be a respected member of the community because it is trained to act with good manners in the home, in public, and in the presence of other dogs.
  • Agility Agility Agility is a fun activity using a range of agility equipment - jumps, tunnels, weave poles, A-frame, seesaw, and dog walks. Agility is fun and is great exercise for dog and handler alike, as they learn skilled control to negotiate a course containing a variety of obstacles.
  • Fly-gility Fly-gility Fly-gility is a dog sport that mixes elements of agility and flyball. The dog is sent away to fetch a ball from a flyball box while navigating tunnels, jumps and weaves before returning the ball to the handler.
  • Rally-O Rally-O Rally-O is a sport which contains elements of obedience and agility. The course has numbered stations with a different exercise performed at each station. Courses can include cones and jumps as well as turns, sits, downs and recalls.
