What might a computer programmer, a lawyer, a teacher, and a dog mom or dad have in common? A love of dogs!!!
Deep Peninsula Dog Training Club is one of the most respected and long established dog training clubs in the Bay Area with a diverse membership that is dedicated to developing a close working relationship with our dogs.
We are a not-for-profit club run by volunteers, licensed by the American Kennel Club, with the primary goal of promoting obedience training for all dogs. As part of our commitment to the AKC, we annually host an Obedience and Rally trial open to all AKC-registered dogs and run by AKC regulations.
But that's not all that we do. We offer obedience classes to the general public through which we emphasize responsible pet ownership and the many ways we can have fun with our dogs. Our members and their dogs have participated in obedience demonstrations, parades and other public relations events. We host several social occasions: our recognition/awards night, our riotous holiday party, a picnic and fun day, and the annual judges' dinner the night before our obedience trial. We keep the membership informed about anti-dog legislation and conduct an annual Canine Good Citizen class and test. Most importantly, we share our knowledge and experience with each other and enjoy a warm camaraderie centered on our dogs!
If you have enjoyed teaching your dog obedience and life skills, if you like the bond that grows between you and your pet through this close association, and if any or all of the above activities interest you, you are invited to join the Deep Peninsula Dog Training Club.
