Membership

PCSC is a goal-oriented club geared toward training both dog and handler for competition in IPO/Schutzhund. The intent is for members to train their dog in obedience, tracking, and protection (if dog is suited for the work), with the intent of trialing and earning titles. We do not offer general obedience classes, puppy classes, or personal protection training.

Membership is open to serious inquiries only. Guests interested in membership are welcome to attend training. All prospective members are required to attend at least 10 training sessions as guests before membership may be offered by the club. Members pay annual club dues, and must also be members of United Schutzhund Clubs of America. Inquiries about club dues can be directed toward any board member during a club visit.
