Welcome to Counties Dog Training Club

  • About the Club:

    The Counties Dog Training Club is based in Franklin and is one of the few clubs in Greater Auckland to have an indoor as well as an outdoor floodlit training area. Founded in 1975, currently the club has a membership of more than 80, ranging in age from under 10 years to 80 years.

  • Training Philosophy:

    We use positive reinforcement training methods, including the use of balls, toys, treats and any other inducements that may motivate the dog. Training can be a lot of fun for both you and your dog, and Counties' goal is to help you train your dog so that he is a well-mannered member of your household. All of our instructors are members of the NZKC.
