The Tullahoma Kennel Club of Tennessee, Inc. conducts dog training classes, which are taught by experienced dog trainers, exhibitors, and professional handlers.  Currently classes are held at the Coffee County Fairgrounds in Manchester, Tennessee, where both indoor (heated and air-conditioned) and outdoor training is possible.

There are four class sessions a year, with the first annual session beginning early to mid-January.  The training courses offered each session are as follows: 

  • Beginning Obedience Class: Designed for both the student who wishes his or her dog to be a good canine citizen by performing basic obedience exercises and the student who wishes to continue training his or her dog for obedience competition. This class can also cover puppy socialization, nutrition, house-training issues, and certain behavioral issues. Class times may vary dependant upon class size and age of dogs. Each class session is held for one hour a week for 7 weeks, where the first week is a lesson-only class following registration.  Cost: $75.00 for non-members, $40.00 for TKC Members.
  • Advanced Obedience Class: Designed to help the dog owner continue the dog's training in order to earn an AKC obedience title or to produce a more obedient and enjoyable pet.  Cost: $55.00 for non-members, $30.00 for TKC Members.
  • Conformation Handling Course: Designed to help students train and show their dogs in AKC dog shows.  Each class session is held for one hour a week.  Cost: $5.00 per week.
  • Canine Good Citizen Course: This class will only be offered twice per year, ending with the test itself. The CGC is the first step toward becoming certified as a therapy dog.  Cost: $30.00 for non-members, $25.00 for TKC Members.
