The North Shore Dog Training Club is the oldest, AKC-member obedience-training club in the United States. NSDTC members come from all over the Chicago metropolitan area and share a common interest in training our dogs. We’re not necessarily dog "professionals," just a bunch of people who like to get together with each other and our dogs, take classes, get tips, and support our sport of competitive obedience.

Mark your calendars! The North Shore Dog Training Club's 75th All-Breed Obedience Trial and 10th Rally Trial will be held Sunday June 14, 2015 at the Libertyville Sports Complex. Here's a link to the Premium List. (Adobe Reader required.)
