Thank you for visiting the York County Dog Training Club website!
YCDTC is an active and friendly group of folks who love all sorts of fun
dog-sports!  We are an AKC
®-affiliated club located in the general York County Pennsylvania USA area.

Our activities include providing trials, tests, matches, and seminars for everyone, and social events for both our dog and human club members!

Our website also provides premiums, entry information and informational fliers for our various club-sponsored activities.


(as of August 29, 2023)

Our club began, humbly, in the kitchen of one of our founding members in 1999, as a way to offer AKC obedience and agility trials
in the York County Pennsylvania area.

Since then, YCDTC has grown to over 100 members, many of whom
have been with our club since its inception.

All of our members, both younger and older, are dedicated to having FUN with our dogs and with our fellow club members, as we enjoy
our various dog-sport activities together!

We invite everyone interested in dog-sport performance activities at any level, with dogs of any breed (or mixed-breed too), to join us!  If you love dogs, and any sort of dog-sport activity, and enjoy the fellowship of other folks interested in dog activities, then YCDTC is for YOU!

Check out our various activities, come on out to meet us at one of our events, and experience what YCDTC is all about!


Event premiums, entry forms, and fliers may be found on the
