The Oriole Dog Training Club, Inc is a non-profit organization formed in 1945 to promote the utility of dogs regardless of pedigree as well behaved and reliable companions for their own safety and well being, for the pleasure of their owners, and so they will be considered good canine citizens of the community.
Our all volunteer instructing staff is passionate about both companion dog (pet manners) training and dog sports training, and collectively represents decades of experience.
