The Greater Saint Louis Training Club is a non-profit organization that advocates and delivers innovative force-free canine training, sponsors events, and provides education for dog enthusiasts to advance the human-canine bond.
Our history begins before World War II. Founded in 1940, the GSLTC is the oldest obedience and training club in the Saint Louis area and has proudly offered over 60 years of obedience training and over 50 years of obedience trials. We are also the only AKC-member obedience club in the St. Louis area!
The GSLTC has everything for dog lovers! We pride ourselves on being non-profit and community centered. Our diverse membership includes pet owners, community activists, and competitors who are active in every branch of dog sports.
Whether you’re looking for training or help with behavior problems, volunteer opportunities, or even interested in pursuing a career as a professional dog trainer, there’s something for you! We offer competition workshops, behavior seminars, public lectures and sponsor community service programs. Members also enjoy social events, a quarterly newsletter, class discounts, and the opportunity to connect with people who love working and playing with their dogs.
