What's Happening?

Charleston Dog Training Club

Our club, founded in 1959, is one of the oldest dog training clubs in South Carolina. Comprised of people who enjoy training their dogs, our members have put many titles on many dogs. We support responsible dog ownership; to promote that goal, we offer group and private, puppy, Canine Good Citizen, flyball, obedience and rally-O classes to the general public. We also offer two hour Mini-Mars (mini-seminars) on topics of general interest to the dog community, open training days and obedience and rally matches. Proceeds from these events help us support The CDTC Dog House and to sponsor  AKC-licensed obedience and AKC agility trials here in Charleston.

Our members are interested in many different aspects of dog ownership, not just obedience and rally-O training.   Some members show their dogs in the breed ring and in agility competitions. Some compete in fly ball, freestyle, lure coursing, water dog competition, hunting and tracking.  Other members are also active in therapy dog programs. Still others are involved in fostering and dog rescue organizations. If we can't help you, we will try and find someone who can.  Our dogs are both purebred and mixed breed.

Our new indoor arena, The CDTC DOG HOUSE, is the only climate controlled, regulation size obedience/rally ring in the Charleston area.  We also have a large fenced dog yard with some shade and picnic tables.  The ring is available for rental by groups and/or individuals. Single rentals as well as monthly passes are available.
