Club membership is a great way to connect with a community of people who share an interest in obedience, agility, tracking, or who just want to improve their canine companion's quality of life through training. Membership is available by application for interested parties who meet the membership requirements set forth in Article II of the Club By-Laws:

  • Complete as a trainee at least one of the courses offered by the Club.  Trainees automatically become associate members for a period of four months.
  • At the conclusion of the initial class or the period of four months, anyone wishing to continue membership shall submit an application form to the Club Secretary.  This application shall carry the endorsement of two members of the Club, one of whom shall be a member of the training staff.
  • The application will be published in the Club newsletter, The Barker Bits, and will be voted on at the next General Meeting after its publication. 

Two types of permanent membership are available:

  • Active members, who may vote and hold office.  Active members are counted for a quorum at meetings, and commit to attending meetings and volunteering as workers when possible.
  • Supporting members, who enjoy all privileges of membership except voting and holding office.  Those who cannot regularly attend meetings nor volunteer as workers should choose this option. 

Members who pay Training Fees are entitled to attend the Monday Night Obedience Group Practice. Additionally, members who pay training fees receive a 50% discount on obedience & rally classes.
