About Us

Peoria Obedience Training Club offers you and your dog one of the best training facilities in the Midwest. POTC has been devoted to dogs and the people who love them since 1946 (now celebrating 75 years!). Our volunteer training staff has many years of combined instruction and training experience. Our membership includes AKC judges, veterinarians, vet techs, professional handlers, kennel managers, trainers and groomers. Some of the top Obedience, Agility and Flyball competitors in the country are POTC members. Many Conformation champions get their start in POTC’s classes. Our instructors can help you with a wide variety of training techniques and can help select the appropriate method for you and your dog. POTC’s instructors are volunteers – there are no paid employees. So you can be sure your instructors are doing what they love: helping you and your dog. Guests are welcome to come see our classes in action. Our building is climate controlled with a sound absorbing system; accessible to people with disabilities;  and fully rubber matted (and  have plans to replace with brand new, thicker mats by the end of the 2021 year!) We also offer plenty of free parking in our well-lit lot, crating space when available, and acres of mowed lawn where dogs may be exercised. We are conveniently located with easy access to the Interstate.
