Our location

We are located in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Our trainings are held in either Carbon or Schuylkill counties and the sites are within 45 minutes of Jim Thorpe.

Our trainings

Because a number of our training locations are located on private grounds it allows everyone to access to the testing grounds multiple times before a test. Due to our training grounds we have members from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Virginia. At the training you will have access to equipment that not everyone can afford or have access to without the chapter. We attempt to have multiple training a month to accommodate all levels of training and ability of dogs.
