GSDOC’s Training Director Message – Session 5

GSDOC’s Training Director Message….

Dear GSDOC Members and Fellow Dog Lovers,

Session 5:

We are excited to try something new for session 5 this year.  Session 5 will only be 6 weeks long and will start on October 20 with registration on October 10 (October 8 for members).  We will offer CGC, STAR Puppy and Focus and Impulse control at 6PM.  From 7-8:30PM we will be offering a selection of “clinic” type classes that will be either one or two nights long.  These will give you an opportunity to sign up and try something you have never done or learn about something that interests you.  The clinics will be $10 each for GSDOC members and you can pick and choose what you would like to take and when as they will be spread out through the session.  They will be listed soon on our website but some examples of what we will have include:  Building Confidence in young dogs, Frisbee Clinic, Games while training, Canine Good Citizen advanced/urban, Intro to rally (only for those wanting to see what its all about).

Public Registration opens for Session 5 on 10/10/20 (October 8 for members) and classes start on 10/20/20 on Tuesdays (unless otherwise noted). This session will be 6 weeks long.


The next round of classes (2020 Session 5) starts October 20.

All classes this session are held inside the Exhibit Hall.

Class registration opens two weeks prior to class start.
Don’t wait! Classes fill up quickly!

We are looking for volunteer instructors!

If you didn’t get into the class you wanted or have questions or want to volunteer, please feel free to contact our Training Director, Dana Crawford email:  [email protected]

In lieu of our fall social this year we are honoring our amazing veterans!  We will be having a “dog parade” at the George E. Whalen Veterans home on September 8 at 6:00 PM.  Put your dogs in costume if you like, maybe you have a matching costume although neither are required!  Time to show off those tricks you have been practicing!! The veterans home is down the street from Golden Spike Event Center where we normally train.  We would love to bring some smiles to everyone’s faces!  Address is 1102 1200 “W”Street Ogden, UT.  For more information you may email [email protected]  We would love to have you and your dog at this event!  Social distancing will be adhered to and masks are encouraged.
