TCKC is located at 2507 Fox Creek Road, Bloomington, IL west of the I-55 / I-74 overpass.  We hold our class in our modern 8,900 square foot, air conditioned training facility.

We serve people from all walks of life who wish to train their dogs - from those wanting simply a well-mannered pet to those desiring a more competitive obedience, rally, agility or conformation experience.

Learning at TCKC

The curriculum at TCKC is geared for eight week old puppies to older dogs wanting to learn.  Obedience classes are offered for puppies starting at eight weeks of age.  Agility classes begin for dogs at one year of age or older.  Both will continue through advanced level of training along with the opportunity of taking Rally classes.  Occasionally classes are held for members and students at the higher levels of competitive obedience and agility.
