Watch for Winter Class Session Information - Registration will be in December and Classes will start in January 2022

The Fall Class session was a great success!  We had beautiful weather for our Agility Trial and CAT event.  Congratulations to all the teams who passed the TDI (Therapy Dog International Test) and the CGC (Canine Good Citizens Test).  Thank you to all who volunteered to make these tests a success!  We will have Winter Session registration in December and classes will start in January. We have volunteer opportunities for our Obedience and Rally trial this month as well as our Scentwork Trial in December.  Enjoy your time off and we look forward to seeing everyone for classes in January

CDTC Code of Ethics

Welcome to Charlotte Dog Training Club

The Charlotte Dog Training Club (CDTC) has been serving the needs of Charlotte area dog owners since 1955 by promoting responsible dog ownership through obedience training, turning our canine friends into good citizens. The club's outreach has grown considerably since the early days. 

CDTC offers puppy socialization, pet beginner, and advanced beginner classes for those looking to help their companion dogs be the best pet they can be.

Dog owners of all types find a supportive, encouraging atmosphere. Whether your interest is in competition Obedience, Rally, Agility, Tracking, or just gaining better control of your dog, our experienced and knowledgeable instructors can help.

Our obedience and rally classes are taught in a convenient and spacious, heated, fully matted, indoor facility with loads of well-lit parking just outside the door.  Our Agility classes are taught outdoors, in a safe, fully lighted and fenced agility field.

    JANE JOHNSON is coming to CDTC for a Two-Day Spring Obedience Workshop!

    Jane has been training dogs for 40 years and has titled 8 dogs to an OTCH. She is also a member of the 200 Club.  She has students with many diverse breeds that have also attained OTCHs.  She loves working with handlers to help them achieve their goals and will also spend time discussing how both people and dogs can overcome/cope with ring nerves.  Please mark your calendars for what will be a very informative workshop!  More details to follow in early 2022.
