TDTC members are a diverse group of individuals with the primary goal of sharing their knowledge regarding companion dog events, mainly obedience and agility. Our canine members range from purebred show dogs to mixed-breed shelter and rescued dogs. The interests of the club members range from competitive obedience and agility training to Paw Pals therapy visits.
Yearly membership fees are due in January of each year. Members are welcome to join at any time during the year and are pro-rated in during the summer and fall sessions.
Membership fees for a single member are $50 USD per year. Family membership fees are $75 USD per year. Family membership provides all family members residing at the same address to become members of the TDTC.
