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.

After much discussion amid a great deal of uncertainty about the Covid-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to CANCEL classes usually held during April and May, the June 2021 Obedience/Rally trials as well as the August Agility Trials, scheduled for August 7-8, 2021.

With as much certainty as can be mustered in these uncertain times, we WILL be hosting Obedience/Rally trials in September 2021!  Entries open July 1, 2021.  See below for details.

Be Well!  Stay Safe! Get Vaccinated!
