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
classes ranging from Puppy Kindergarten through Advanced Obedience, Young Dog
Obedience and Small Dog Obedience, Introduction
to Agility, Rally, and Conformation. 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 handles 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.
