IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: 4/24/17 Training is on hiatus ... The Barking Lot in Deerfield (where we train) suffered a major water main break, causing significant damage to the building. Fortunately the staff was able to get all the boarding and day care dogs out of the building safely. Repair time is estimated to be about a month.

Watch this page for an announcement telling you when we're resuming classes!

The North Shore Dog Training Club is the oldest, AKC-member obedience-training club in the United States. NSDTC members come from all over the Chicago metropolitan area and share a common interest in training our dogs. We’re not necessarily dog "professionals," just a bunch of people who like to get together with each other and our dogs, take classes, get tips, and support our sport of competitive obedience.

We'll keep you posted for the next training session at The Barking Lot, 495 Lake Cook Road, Deerfield, IL 60015. Click on Training Classes for the schedule and fees. Or call 847-677-0680 days, 847-674-8613 evenings for more information and to reserve a space!

If you'd like to save time at registration the first night, please print out and complete the training waiver. Bring it to class the first night and give it to the Registrar. You'll need Acrobat Reader (a free downloaded software program) to open the file: training_waiver.pdf.
