NORTH K9 is a dog training business based in Huddersfield and Cleckheaton, focusing on providing positive, safe, fun, and consistent dog training with qualified instructors. We offer companion dog training, specialise in dog sport training, and also offer one-to-one consultations in dog behaviour and socialisation.
North K9 is also happy to be recommended by local veterinary practices.
Dog Training Classes at North K9
We offer a variety of weekly dog training classes including Life Skills classes for puppies, and a range of companion dog classes including Canine Good Citizen Dog Scheme classes. We also offer dog sport training for flyball, agility, and obedience, and organise one-off Workshops and Seminars in a variety of canine fields. All our venues are ideally situated near the M62 motorway making these locations accessible to people from Manchester, Leeds, Bradford, Halifax, Holmfirth, Wakefield, Dewsbury, and surrounding areas.
Classes have limited spaces to ensure every dog and handler has the time and space they need to work effectively, and each class has a two instructors present at all times. We use force-free reward-based training which is motivational for dogs and owners, and results in happy, confident pets who have positive relationships with their owners. The safety and welfare of your dog is always our priority, and we abide by both the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers Code of Conduct and the Kennel Club Accredited Instructor Scheme Code of Practice for Instructors. As we have Listed Status for Canine Good Citizen Dog Scheme classes, we are also bound by their Code of Conduct.
Where dog training in a class environment is not suitable or where the times of our classes don’t work for you, we also provide one-on-one dog training with one of our head trainers. More details are available on our Private Consultations page.
For those who cannot commit to a regular class and would like to work in a group setting, we also periodically offer dog training taster sessions and workshops featuring a specific dog sport. Keep an eye on our home page or our Workshops page, where news of these special dog training workshops will be posted at regular intervals!
