Train Like You Trial - Our Rings Are Ready!

Train Like You Trial at Happy Dogs

Happy Dogs Training Center provides a place where individuals passionate about dog training can train in a “trial-like” setting on their own schedule. Happy Dogs is the only Competition Obedience facility in South Carolina with a membership program.

The Happy Dogs facility offers 6,000 sq. feet of climate-controlled space with two full-sized rings. There is a generous warm-up area and space for crating and a full kitchen. For the serious trainer, there is a 55″ television for viewing training and trial videos or to gather around and watch the big events and tournaments as a group.

Not sure you are ready to become a member? No problem. There are many training options for nonmembers too. Nonmembers may join us for Competition Obedience or Rally Classes, Private Lessons, Drop-in Training, Run-Thrus, Seminars and other events.

Happy Dogs fills the gaps in your training plan!

There is a six-month seasonal membership for part-time residents. Seasonal members are also entitled to all benefits of a full member.

Members receive first notice of Happy Dogs workshops, seminars and events so they can secure a spot early.
