Welcome to the Phoenix Dog Training Club
New Zealand

For all your domestic dog training requirements!

The Phoenix Dog Training Club was formed in 1995

by a group of committed volunteers.

Since then we have grown and we still retain a core group of foundation members willing to give their time and experience to new members.

We teach you how to train your dog.

  • We are committed to providing domestic dog training to the general public at an affordable price in a friendly, relaxed environment.
  • We encourage dogs of all breeds and ages.
  • We believe in using motivational methods in training, encouraging the bond between dog and owner.
  • We encourage you to stay after class and relax with a cup of coffee/tea and have a chat to your instructor, committee member or other classmates.
