A Friendly Welcome!


About Concord Dog Training Club

Our club is undergoing a transition and revitalization.  As many people know we had to give up our dedicated training space in West Concord in late 2013 when expenses became to high.  Also, our beloved Puppy Kindergarten trainer and long-time club member Arlee Recktenwald past away.  With the rise of so many for-profit dog training centers and private come-to-the-house trainers we were not able to keep our classes in operation.  We hope that will change in the coming years.

The club has scheduled regular training sessions for members-only on the 2nd Friday of selected months and is working on general seminars so that we can continue our mission to provide quality training to dog fanciers.

All members are welcome and encouraged to attend board meetings.  Watch this site for the next date.

If you have any questions please Send EMail and we will respond as soon as possible.

    I have a friend who lives in Sudbury and who is interested in doing agility for fun, using positive reinforcement training methods.
    Do you know of a dog training club in or near Sudbury that would provide this activity for her and her dog?
    Thanks, Jean Tebay

      I imagine that by now your friend has found some place to train. The closest place to Sudbury is Especially for Pets. Our club is not able to offer training at this time but we are in residence at DogStar Activity Center in Acton.

    My husband and I are getting a new puppy in August. I would like to know if you offer training classes for puppies. Where are you now located? I was hoping to find classes near by. We live in Lexington.
    Your organization was recommended by my vet

    Thank you!

      Hi Catherine,
      Unfortunately we are not able to offer any training classes at this time. We lost our facility and have not been able to find new space we can afford. Also, our long-time puppy trainer, Arlee Recktenwald, past away.
      We are currently in residence at DogStar Activity Center in Acton, MA near the Concord Rotary. They do offer puppy classes. Our members meet to train their own dogs at “Training Parties” that the club sponsors approximately monthly in the fall-winter-spring months.
      Regards, Anne
