We have listened to your requests and in response, we have added more Puppy, Manners, and Obedience Classes to the schedule, and made the class sizes SMALLER!!! In addition, last year we installed a sound absorbing system that has improved the sound quality in the building, eliminating noises from bouncing off the ceiling. Instructors, students, and trial participants are voicing how impressive these ceiling tiles are! We have also added more mats to cover the entire floor.
POTC offers you and your dog one of the best training facilities in the Midwest with a climate controlled training building accessible to people with disabilities.
POTC has been devoted to dogs and the people who love them since 1946. 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 Conformation class. Our instructors can help you with a wide variety of training techniques and can help select the appropriate method for you and your dog. Since POTC is a club with no paid employees, 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.
We are conveniently located with easy access to the Interstate. We have a well-lighted parking lot and acres of mowed lawn where the dogs may be exercised.
