Welcome to Concord Dog Training Club!

Our club is undergoing a transition and hopeful revitalization in 2015.  As many people know we had to give up our dedicated training space in West Concord when expense became to high.  The club is working on scheduling regular training sessions for members and general seminars so that we can continue our mission to provide quality training to dog fanciers.

Attention Members:  the board is meeting on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at Dunkin Donuts in West Concord to discuss 2015 club events.  All members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

New Rally Trial!  See the Events page to learn about our new rally trial on June 14, 2015.
