Creating better relationships between people and dogs
through teaching and training.
The Nassau Dog Training Club (NDTC) is a NYS domestic not-for-profit that has been in existence since 1947. A member of the American Kennel Club (AKC), we are comprised of a dedicated group of dog enthusiasts focused on teaching people how to train their dogs to be good canine citizens.
We are located in Franklin Square, Long Island (Nassau County) and conveniently accessible from Garden City, Stewart Manor, New Hyde Park, Floral Park, Elmont and the surrounding areas of Queens and Suffolk County.
Our instructors have many years of experience in obedience and rally training. One advantage of training with an obedience club is that you get the assistance and expertise of a professional staff as well as other club members.
Our classes have been carefully developed to let you learn and train at your own pace, no matter your individual goals or whether you have had any prior training.
Dogs of all types (purebred and mixed breeds), sizes, and ages come together and benefit from the experience cultivated by the Nassau Dog Training Club.
