Lilac City Dog Training Club is a dog training and obedience organization based in Spokane, Washington.  The club is located at 1612 East Houston Ave, Spokane, WA  99217. We provide popular dog training and obedience dogs rotating classes ranging from Puppy Kindergarten through Advanced Obedience, Young Dog Obedience and Small Dog Obedience, Introduction to Agility, Rally, and Conformation.  Our newest training opportunity is called Nosework. Many of our classes help people prepare to show their dogs in AKC and UKC shows and trials.

Our experienced instructors focus their time and expertise to help you train your dog. Our methods are praise positive, dog-friendly, fun and effective. Lilac City Dog Training Club is a UKC-affiliated, non-profit, volunteer dog training and obedience club.

Lilac City Dog Training Club members include AKC judges, and experienced handlers that actively compete in dog sports.  Our members have earned advanced titles on their dogs in obedience (Obedience Trial Champion), agility (Masters Agility Champion), rally (Rally Advanced Excellent), tracking (Tracking Dog), earthdog (Master Earthdog) and conformation (Grand Champion and International Champion).  Our members have a broad base of skills to help your dog become all it can be from a better family member to a titled star.

The Limited Privilege is open to all dogs that are spayed/neutered. This includes mixed breed dogs, and purebred dogs of unknown pedigree.  Click on the below link and look for Limited Privilege Application.
