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.  The club held its first AKC trials in obedience and rally after a five year hiatus in 2015 and 2016.  Expect more trials in 2017!

SAVE THE DATE: Agility Trials are back at the St. Lawrence Valley Dog Club!  AKC approved Agility Trials will be held indoors on August 12/13, 2017 at the St. Lawrence University Riding Arena in Canton, NY.  Our judge will be Don Skibniewski of Getzville, NY.  Time 2 Beat, F.A.S.T., Standard and Jumpers with Weaves will be offered at the Novice, Open, Excellent and Masters levels each day.  In addition ACT 1 and 2 will be offered for those dogs not yet ready for Novice level.  The premium list is available below.
