The Dog Training Club of St. Petersburg (DTCSP) has been active in Dog Training for over fifty years. The purpose of the club is to share our knowledge and experience in order to help the St Petersburg community train their dogs.
We have experienced and dedicated instructors that bring their valuable knowledge and experience to their students.
Our classes are for people who enjoy who want a well-mannered family pet or would like to enter competition events with their dogs. We offer classes in Obedience (puppy through Utility), Agility, Conformation, Rally, Flyball, Therapy and more. You may also sign up for the AKC Canine Good Citizenship test. We also offer help to people who are having behavioral challenges with their dog.
Crazy for Canines is our 4H club that welcomes membership to dog lovers from St Petersburg, Gulfport, Pinellas Park, Seminole, Clearwater, Largo, Safety Harbor as well as Tampa.
DTCSP has a large, modern, air-conditioned facility located at 4400-B 34th Street North (US 19), St. Petersburg, Florida. Three fully-matted rings hold dog training classes Monday through Friday evenings, and special dog competition events on weekends. You do not need to be a member to train here. All classes are open to the public.
Before you decide on where you will go for dog training, check us out. You are invited to stop by any Monday through Wednesday evening, between 6:00 and 9:00 PM to watch any of our training classes, talk to our training instructors and see dogs being trained at different levels. Please note that we use positive reinforcement methods in our dog training. Stop by the front desk and let them know who you are, what areas of concern you have we will have someone give you a tour of our dog training facilities and introduce you to a training instructor. We have been proud to be serving the Pinellas and Hillsborough communities for more than 55 years and welcome your participation too.
