Kiwi Aversion Training for Dogs

Now that stoats are controlled within the Trust's management area, dogs are the greatest threat to kiwi in Puketi. Aversion training, when combined with a good level of dog obedience and control, helps reduce the chances of dogs killing kiwi and is especially important for pig hunting dogs.

Kiwi aversion training is now a requirement for obtaining a hunting permit for Puketi and Omahuta forests.

The Department of Conservation provides free aversion training at least twice a year at several locations around the district. The training is conducted by Lesley Baigent, vet of Kaitaia.

To enquire about kiwi aversion training and to book your dog in for training, contact the Department of Conservation Far North District Office, 34 Landing Rd, Kerikeri. (09) 407 0300.
