What Are The Club's Goals?
It is the club's primary goal to bring dog education awareness to our part of Ohio and northern Kentucky in as
many ways as we can manage.
We are officially UKC licensed to hold UKC performance & conformation events:  OH-0620
And, we also strive to offer educational demos, dog safety presentations, & offer affordable dog training classes
that will help people of our area be able to develop & maintain a stronger bond with their 4-legged best friend(s)
through education &
pawsitive experiences. We also strive to have dogs in our club actively working in our
community as registered therapy dogs in public libraries, schools and nursing facilities
*~ We equally welcome both pure & mixed breed dogs into our club. ~*

All officers of the club were chosen by their peers within the dog club in November and have had experience in organizations such as other dog
