Metro actively participates and encourages our members to compete in every discipline of Dog Sports. Currently we have members competing in Conformation, Obedience, Rally-O, Agility, Jumping, Retrieving, Tracking, Endurance, Herding and Dancing with Dogs.
Our club is staffed by volunteers, people who have started out in Class 1 with their first dog and have demonstrated a flair and love of teaching others. When looking for an Instructor the Training Coordinator looks for someone showing an ability to communicate, a willingness to demonstrate and, most importantly, a love of learning. Please remember all of our Instructors are volunteers and are here for the love of dogs. Please treat them with respect.
