Established in 1972, the St. Lawrence Valley Dog Club is a nonprofit dog club dedicated to the responsible ownership of all dogs. We are an American Kennel Club licensed club and welcome owners of both purebred and mixed-breed dogs.  The club regularly holds classes and sponsors AKC trials which focus on agility, obedience, and rally.

Obedience/Rally Trials – June, 2023

St. Lawrence Valley Dog Club is pleased to be hosting two Obedience/Rally trials on June 17/18, 2023 (AKC approved) in Westville, NY.  Our judge for the weekend is Lori Moffa of Plattsburgh, NY.  The Premium list is here:    2023 June Premium List – Final

Loris is one of our favorite judges and we are excited to be welcoming her back to Westville.  For those of you who have earned qualifying scores from Lori, please note that in August, 2022, AKC made permanent the COVID provision that:

  • “In all Obedience and Rally classes that require three qualifying scores to earn a title, the three scores may be earned under the same judge.”

Obedience/Rally Trials – September

The St. Lawrence Valley Dog Club will offer 4 Obedience and 4 Rally trials on September 23/24, 2023 at the Sandstone Arena (Pine Street)  in Potsdam, NY, pending AKC approval.  Judges will be Denise LaCroix of Spencer, MA and Lisa Mitchell of Interlaken, NY.   Premium list will be available soon.
