Dog training at all levels from Puppy Kindergarten through Competition Obedience.


Philadelphia Dog Training Club, Inc. (PDTC) is a not for profit organization founded in 1938. We are members of the American Kennel Club.

PDTC is a leader in successful dog training at all levels from Puppy Kindergarten (Puppy-K) through Advanced Competition. All dogs, whether pure bred or mixed breed, are welcome in our classes.

You will learn to tailor training to meet both your needs and your dog’s needs with methods that are consistent, fair and understandable to your dog.

At all levels of training, you will learn:

      • How dogs learn
      • How to keep training fun for you and your dog
      • What training methods work best for your dog
      • How to eliminate unwanted behaviors
      • How to motivate your dog
      • How to use praise, food and correction in a fair and effective manner
