TCOTC membership dues are $20 per year for a single person and $30 per year for a household. A single membership assumes the same person will handle the dog at each class. A household membership allows for multiple handlers to take turns in the training ring.  A household can have an unlimited number of members, but only two over the age of 18 can vote on club issues.

TCOTC members receive:

  • Access to great trainers and advice
  • Cost-effective training using positive methods
  • A vote in the governance of your club
  • Access to a lending library of reviewed and approved titles
  • Access to a club store with recommended training aids

Members are eligible for discounted rates on select special event registrations.


The club is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, who meet on the second Tuesday of every month.  Board meetings are open for club members and staff, and member participation is welcomed.
