CTA offers several membership options for those who want to continue dog training activities beyond the basic obedience level. Membership signups, member profile information, and ongoing class registrations are all managed on the Registration Site (link under More Info on this page.)

Obedience Membership

Annual Cost: $180

Annual Obedience membership entitles all dogs in a member’s household to attend as many obedience classes per week as they wish to attend. Obedience membership includes obedience classes and run-throughs as well as Rally and Freestyle classes. Most classes other than Agility and a few specialty classes are covered by the Obedience membership.

Everyone who has taken a 10 week Basic or Puppy Obedience class is eligible to become an Obedience member.

Please send your membership information, dues and provide copies of rabies certificates for any dogs that are currently training at a CTA facility. In addition, each member needs a Hold Harmless Waiver on file. The hold harmless waiver is located on the back of the class registration card and also on the annual membership application.

Agility Membership

Annual Cost: $150

An Agility membership entitles you to take as many Agility classes as you wish and allows you to rent the building for practice sessions. Each 8 week Agility class has a fee - $100.00 for CTA Agility Members or $130.00 for non-members. Everyone who has taken an 8 week Basic Agility class is eligible to become an Agility member.

Joint Membership (Obedience and Agility)

Annual Cost: $190

If you have taken either a Basic Obedience class or Basic Agility class you are eligible for the joint Agility/Obedience annual membership and the privileges and rate reductions they provide.
