What classes do you offer?
Visit the links on the left for more information on classes. We offer classes for Puppies, Obedience, Agility, Rally and Barn Hunt with the occasional seminar. Current class descriptions are listed on the left. Not all classes are offered every session. Contact us at info@gfdtc.org for availability or call 701-215-3005 to visit with Emily, our Registration Coordinator.

How can I register?
You can register by printing a registration form from our registration page HERE. Forms can be mailed to the address specified on the page, or submitted in person at Treat Play Love in Grand Forks. Some classes fill up fast, so early registration is important. You will receive a confirmation email notifying you of which class/section you have made it into for the upcoming session. It is important that you check your email prior to class starting or speak with our registration coordinator if you have issues with receiving emails.

Who teaches classes?
All instructors of the GFDTC are volunteers. We are people who enjoy not only training our dogs but also educating the people in our communities about effectively communicating with their dogs. Some show, compete in agility, Rally or Barn hunt, or just train dogs for fun.

Do I have to have a purebred dog or want to compete?
Absolutely not! Our members, trainers, and those that take classes do so for a variety of reasons. Some like to compete, but a vast majority are just looking for a fun way to interact and bond with their dog. If you are looking to create a better bond with your dog or are interested in competing we have something for every dog and handler team!

When do classes start?
New Sessions begin every other month. You can start in any session, based on availability of the class. Some classes do have a waitlist. Once you sign-up you will be notified if you got into the class of your choice for the first session of your choice.
