Become a Member

Anyone who has trained with us through at least one session of classes is eligible to apply for membership. You will need to submit a New Membership Application which requires you to obtain two current USDTC members to sign as sponsors. Once your completed application and payment is received, it will be reviewed by the USDTC board which meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Following the board's approval, your application will then be read to the membership for voting at the next General Meeting. General Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of every other month (unless otherwise noted to accommodate a holiday). You will be required to attend this meeting for your membership approval to be completed. If you are not able to attend, your membership will be held until voting can take place with you in attendance.


That's it! Once you are voted in by the membership, your benefits become active and you will be presented with a New Membership package which includes:

  • Free USDTC car decal
  • Calendar of Annual Events
  • List of Volunteer job descriptions
  • Application for AKC registration with instructions
  • How to find AKC events
  • Coupon for 1 free drop-in class
  • Coupon for 25% off your 1st USDTC T-shirt
