Our aim is to help you train your dog to be an enjoyable companion and, if you desire, to participate in competitions.* Not all dogs have identical personalities and capabilities; so, what works for one dog may not work for another. The Oak Ridge Kennel Club uses positive training methods, and we enjoy seeing owners strengthen their relationships with their dogs through training.

As a volunteer organization, we are not equipped to deal with aggressive dogs or dogs with a history of biting. If an instructor determines that your dog can’t safely participate in a group training class, you will be excused from the class, and ORKC will refund payment for the balance of the classes not taken.

*ORKC does not train service dogs or train service dog/handler teams.

Class Schedule

While we strive to keep our website as up to date as possible, sometimes our classes fill faster than we can update our site. Please be sure to check our Facebook page for the latest information about class availability.
