Manukau Dog Training Club (MDTC) is one of many dog training clubs in New Zealand. It first started in 1972, and has been growing ever since. We now have over 200 members and train every Tuesday and Thursday nights.

The Club teaches both Obedience and Agility disciplines, from beginners to competition levels, and many of our members do both.

Who runs Manukau Dog Training Club?

The Club is run by a committee made up of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and a committee. The AGM is held once a year in February. Committee meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 8:30pm in the Club Rooms. If there is anything you would like raised at a meeting please let a committee member know.

New Zealand Kennel Club

The New Zealand Kennel Club is the prevailing body in NZ looking after all things canine! Dog Clubs are required to subscribe, thence becoming registered, and are required to adhere to certain standards and conduct as laid down by the Kennel Club.

It is also where dogs can be registered, which is compulsory, if the dog is to enter Breed Shows or Championship Obedience and Agility Shows. To join the NZ Kennel Club, you must be a member of an affiliated dog club, which Manukau Dog Training Club is. As an independent member of NZKC you receive a monthly magazine "The Kennel Gazette" in which can be found some interesting articles, breed information and show dates and results. Copies are available in our Clubrooms.
