Mission Statement

Since its inception, the Grand Forks Dog Training Club has provided the general public with education and training for purebred and crossbred dogs. We have set our training standards high in accordance with the American Kennel Club (AKC) for conformation, obedience, rally obedience, and agility. We strive to give the highest quality of training available while continually updating our training methods. The Club offers educational programs to help breeders and pet owners alike in dog related subjects of interest to everyone.

Members of the GFDTC are always delighted to bring their dogs out to public events, schools, senior centers, clubs and nursing homes to provide entertainment and education, so as to further the advancement of all breeds of dogs.
