Member Training

We offer club training Thursday nights. From mid April through mid September, training is held outdoors at the Liberty Fire Company in Sinking Spring. From mid September through mid April, training is held indoors at the Berks County 4-H Center in Bern Township.

Members can train by themselves starting at 5:30 p.m. and can use the club equipment. At 7 p.m. a variety of 1-hour classes are held for different training levels: Beginner Novice, Novice and specialty classes. See Pup Stuff for details. After 8 p.m. you may train on your own again until dark, if outdoors at the fire company, or until 9:30 p.m. at the 4-H.

To join the club if you already have had some basic obedience training, please call 610-670-7009 and leave a message indicating your desire to join the club and information on where you have trained before.

If you've never had obedience training, please check out our Basic Skills Class information.




The Berks County Dog Training Club was founded in 1946 as a not-for-profit organization with the purpose of training you to train your dog. To this day we continue with that same purpose. Through the years we have grown to a membership of several hundred people. We are a very active group with many dedicated volunteers who would welcome the opportunity to "train you to train your dog."
