Who Are We?

 The Indian River Dog Training Club, Inc. (IRDTC), is a 501(c)4 not-for-profit corporation formed in November of 1975, sanctioned by the State of Florida, and licensed by the American Kennel Club. The club's indoor, climate-controlled facility is located between Palm Bay Road and U.S. 1, at 1651 Robert J Conlan Blvd. NE, in Palm Bay, Florida. 

Anyone can take classes or enter club events but becoming a member makes you part of the IRDTC family. IRDTC is a community of dog training enthusiasts who not only enjoy getting together to train and have fun with their own canine companions but who also work hard to help others in the community learn how to train and possibly compete with their dogs as well. Members also give their time to hosting the various trials, shows and other special events that bring high-level competitive events to our local area several times each year. In return, members have the opportunity to take classes at discounted prices and have access to a really nice, indoor, climate-controlled facility where they can train their dogs.
