As part of our giving back mission, 

the Old York Road Dog Training Club, on a case-by-case basis, considers granting fee waivers on classes for club member dog owners who have rescued a dog who is challenged with a significant disability. 

We realize that taking on this extra responsibility can be a financial tightrope and hope to help  our club members succeed with this token of encouragement.

Contact us  for more information!

Anyone who has completed one full session (Puppy KPT, Beginner, or Intermediate) is eligible to apply for membership.  If you decide to become a member you will receive a discount on your yearly training fees.  Our KPT and Beginner's classes are 50% off for Club Members!   Additionally, members are also invited to participate in several social events throughout the year.  

If you do not choose to become a member, you and your dog are still welcome to participate in classes for as long as you like.

The club holds several events each year for the members and their dogs.  We host a summer picnic with games, prizes, food and beverages plus a large dose of fun.  In December, we host our Annual Holiday Party with a pet Pollyanna and a visit from "Santa Paws".  Yearly we have our Annual Meet & Greet Awards Banquet currently being held in February.  This is a great time for all members to gather and recognize those that have earned titles or milestones in the past year.

The best reason to join is that you will have the opportunity to make new friends who share common goals, to exchange challenges and successes and to learn how to build a committed lifetime relationship with your dog.  All members will receive a copy of our Club Rules and complementary OYRDTC logo bandana too!

​Old York Road Dog Training Club supports charitable organizations in the surrounding community.
