A place where you can bring your dog and train in a group environment, from beginners right through to advanced sessions. This is an exciting new concept for the area for dogs of all ages. The classes are run by David Kotek from Dog Man Australia and Sophie Thomson from AceK9 Training Service (formally Sophie’s K9 Park). Both David and Sophie are local to the Northern Rivers area and have a combined wealth of knowledge and experience in all facets of dog training. We have also welcomed to the team, Erina Roch, one of our leading dog-teams from our Advanced Class and Paul Barrenger from Dog Man Australia. The North Coast K9 Academy has been a resounding success for dogs and their owners in the Northern Rivers and we are proud of the achievements and accomplishments of all our attendees.

Classes commence each Sunday morning in line with NSW School Terms, and are held at Sophie’s Private Property situated at 29 Waratah Lane, Alstonville.
