 A Great Place To Train....

Spokane Dog Training Club has offered a wide variety of quality classes to the public for more than 50 years.  We have excellent facilities, committed instructors, friendly atmosphere, and a complete set of classes from pet training to competition.  We are the only American Kennel Club sanctioned dog training club in the greater Spokane area.  Explore what we have to offer.


Registration for classes at SDTC during this pandemic time will be limited. More information will be posted later. During Session 4, we will be taking care of students who were enrolled earlier this year but unable to attend classes due to our having to cancel all classes in what would have been Session 2 and Session 3. Session 4 of this year will be limited to those students needing to get the classes for which they are already registered. There will be limited openings in puppy classes, which will be targeted for puppies from 12 weeks up to 1 year old. If you are interested in the puppy classes, please contact our club via our Contact Form on the web site.

If you are unable to attend Session 4 classes we would be glad to refund your funds. If you require a refund please email the club from the CONTACT US link and it will be forwarded to the correct person. Please include your full name, phone number, email address, dog's name and the class or classes you have registered for.

Be assured that we appreciate your loyalty to SDTC as we are loyal to the dog community.

Stay healthy. Stay safe.
