Greenville Area Dog Club Offers Dog Training Classes

School is in session for dogs this summer. For the first time, the Greenville Area Dog Club is offering summer classes to the public. “With our new building, we can offer classes year-round,” said Barb Rhoades, director of obedience training.

Earlier this year, the Greenville Area Dog Club began offering classes at the former U.S. Chemical building, located in the 5400 block of State Route 49. For winter and spring session, classes were offered three nights each week. “For the summer session, we’re only offering classes on Tuesday evenings,” said Charlotte Wisener, director of agility training. “However, we’re offering a nice combination of agility and obedience classes.”

Classes offered include Intermediate/Advanced agility at 6:30 p.m., Beginning Obedience at 7:45 p.m., Beginning Agility at 7:45 p.m. Classes begin on Tuesday, June 7. Due to limited class sizes, pre-registration is required for both obedience and agility classes for the summer session. To pre-register for obedience classes, please call 937-548-0338 or 937-337-0292. To pre-register for agility classes, please call 937-692-5310.
The completion of the registration process will take place prior to classes on Tuesday, June 7. Registration for agility classes is from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Registration for obedience classes is from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Orientation and classes will follow registration.

Dogs must be up-to-date on vaccinations, and participants must bring a copy of the dog’s vaccination records to registration. Those participating in Greenville Area Dog Club classes are reminded that parking is available both in front of the building as well as near the rear entrance. The entrance for dog classes is located on the north side of the building, near the rear. Those bringing dogs to class are reminded to feed the dogs earlier in the day, rather than before class.

Most classes use dog treats as training aids. Participants are reminded to bring small, bite-sized treats that can be used for rewarding their dogs. Participants also are reminded to wear comfortable, tie-on shoes.
