The Greenville Area Dog Club has a new training building and will offer obedience and agility classes in the upcoming months.

The building is located in the 5400 block of State Route 49, just north of the Stardust Motel.

“With this building, we’ll be able to offer agility and obedience classes as well as hold competitions,” said Charlotte Wisener, director of agility training for the Greenville Area Dog Club. “We expect to have more flexibility with scheduling in the new location.”

“At this time, club members are cleaning the building and making necessary improvements so that it will be ready for classes in January,” said Barb Rhoades, director of obedience training for GADC.

The Greenville Area Dog Club offers dog obedience, conformation, and agility classes to the public throughout the year. Because it didn’t have a training location to use this fall, it was unable to offer these classes.

“Several people contacted us inquiring about classes,” Rhoades said. “We’re happy to report that we will be offering again soon – maybe as soon as January.”The dog club had been training in the Tractor Supply Company building in Greenville for the past several years.

The Greenville Area Dog Club offers obedience classes for puppies, 12 weeks and older, and adult dogs. Class topics include basic house manners, grooming and care of the dog, heeling, sit, down, stay, and other commands.

It also offers beginning, intermediate and advanced agility classes. In these classes, dogs learn to go over jumps, through tunnels, and negotiate other obstacles such as a dog walk, A-frame, chute and teeter-totter.

“We are in the process of putting together a training schedule for the coming year,” Rhoades said. “Once we have the schedule confirmed, we will announce it.”
