  • Register today for: Dog Training Demonstration by the Burlington County Kennel Club

    Do you love your dog?  Do you want a better trained dog?  Do you want to have more interaction with your dog?   Everyone wants a well-mannered pup; here’s your opportunity to learn some basic commands and get Fido off the couch. Burlington County Kennel Club members will present a crowd-pleasing demonstration (with their awesome dogs) of basic obedience skills, and some fun tricks that you can do too!

    We want to inspire everyone to interact their dogs.  Earn a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate (offered by the AKC) when your dog performs ten basic skills that every dog should learn!   Enjoy training your dog, and learn some tricks too!  This is a demonstration only, so do not bring your dog for training or testing at this time.

    The Burlington County Kennel Club always welcomes new members who are interested in showing and/or training their dogs, or just learning more about dogs.  The club does not offer training classes, except breed handling, but we can point you in the right direction if you want to learn more to teach your dog!  We meet the first Wednesday of every month (except July and August) at 7:30pm at the Moorestown Community House.
