Oriole is once again open for most classes and activities inside the building and reconstruction is starting soon.
Thursday 7/14/2016 Update: Recap – We had flooding in the front portion of the building on Monday 5/9/2016 and had to temporarily close while estimates and remediation were taking place. Professional remediation procedures occurred on Monday 5/16/2016 and Oriole reopened a week later and has been fully open for all classes and trials since then with a reduced number of rooms and functional bathrooms.
A contractor has been selected and reconstruction will begin on Monday, 7/18/2016. This contractor will be working Monday through Friday from 7am to 4pm. The building will continue to be open for classes and other activities during this time. Please pay attention to signs/barriers showing you where you should walk to get to the sportsfield and blue training room. Work is expected to conclude on Friday, 7/29/2016.
While we are under construction, the only indoor bathroom that is available is the ADA bathroom in the middle hallway. Additional relief is available in the form of Porta-potties in the front of the building next to the storage Pod. Please forgive our appearance while we are under reconstruction. We are looking forward to having all internal bathrooms, hallways, and offices restored as well as in installation of dog-friendly vinyl throughout the hallways.
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.
