Welcome to Sport Dog Center

Welcome to Sport Dog Center, located in Santa Rosa, CA.  We have 17,000 square feet in our new facility including 10,000 square feet with agility mats.  At Sport Dog Center, our passion is helping you and your dog develop skills to compete in one or more sports in a friendly, supportive environment.

Dog Training Classes

Agility Instruction

Agility is team sport with a human and canine partner. Competitors race against the clock to direct their dogs through tunnels, over jumps and through weave poles. Agility has captured the heart of dog trainers.

K9 Nose Work Instruction

K9 Nose Work is a sport based on professional detection work.  Based on methods from professional work, dogs are trained to search for scented oils.

Obedience Training

Sport Dog Center offers obedience training classes with the goal of developing a well mannered dog that you can take anywhere.  While you might participate in these classes as an end in itself, you and your dog will be prepared to continue your training fun while pursuing the exciting dog sports of Agility, Rally or K9 Nose Work.

Rally Instruction

This sport differs from traditional obedience because every course is different much like agility. Unlike agility, however, there is no running required on the part of the human so everyone can do it. There is even a competition category for children ages 8-18 to encourage all family members to participate in training the family dog.  Obedience instruction is not required for participation in this sport.

Special Events

You may sign up for one of our special events: Agility Fun Match, Agility Run-through or a Sniff-n-Go event.

Agility Club

Sport Dog Center’s agility facility will be available for practice by experienced teams. Once you join the agility club, you may reserve the course by completing our registration form. Depending on demand, there may be a limitation on the number of reservations allowed per week.
