Winston-Salem Dog Training Club

 "Teaching you to train your dog"

The Winston-Salem Dog Training Club offers group training classes to the general public for all breeds of dogs. Our instructors and assistants are dedicated volunteers willing to share their knowledge so that you and your canine companion may have a happy and active life together.

Our members perform community service activities; such as obedience demonstrations and therapy dog visits. The club sponsors the New Leash on Life Program and the Triad Bloodhounds Search and Rescue team.

As an AKC member club, we conduct sanctioned Rally and Obedience Trials, Tracking Tests and Agility events.

"My Dog Doesn't Listen..."

Whether you are 10 years old or a senior, if you know what to do, you can teach your dog basic obedience. Our instructors will show you how to have a well-mannered companion.

If your dog is five (5) months or over, the Beginner I Manners & Obedience class is where you want to start.

Check the Classes page for the dates of the next session and mark your calendar to register!
