The Grand Forks Dog Training Club strives to promote responsible dog ownership in the communities we serve, through seminars, workshops, and classes. We are proud to have multiple instructors in our puppy & early obedience classes to offer the individual instruction our students need in order to raise a happy, healthy, and well-behaved dog.
Many take classes for a variety of reasons — some to have fun bonding with their dog and some to prepare for competition. Whatever your training goals are we invite you to sign up for a class!
All instructors of the GFDTC are volunteers who donate their time. Many compete in dog sports and activities, and wish to share that knowledge with others in the community. We are people who enjoy not only training our dogs but also educating the people in our communities about effectively communicating with their dogs. As a non-profit, none of our instructors are paid. Class fees help cover the cost associated with our building rental, maintainance, heating and cooling, and training materials.
