Building Use

The building is closed until further notice

Due to the ongoing and ever changing health crisis posed by COVID-19, The Board of Directors of Albany Obedience Club has decided to postpone classes for two weeks. 

At the end of the two weeks (roughly March 28th) the Board will re-evaluate the situation and decide if classes will be continued or this session cancelled.  Regardless of the outcome at point we can always re-adjust when Session 3 will start and possibly only have five sessions this year instead of 6.  


Show and Go's for the next two weeks will be cancelled.

Please contact me or any member of the board if you have any questions or concerns.

REMINDER:  Please do not close the gate.  It needs to be left open this time of year to allow easy access to the person who keeps the parking area plowed. 

The building is available to members when classes aren't scheduled and on weekends when the facility isn't being used for a Show and Go, trial, seminar, etc.


There is a $5.00 fee for each training session.  Members may bring a guest for a $25 fee per training session.


TO OBTAIN A KEY TO THE BUILDING, a person must be a member in good standing for 6 months, attend at least one membership meeting other than the meeting they were voted in, and participate in at least one volunteer activity.  Contact Kathy McLaughlin-Wager


All equipment MUST be put back against the walls before you leave.  Please be sure to turn off the lights, turn the heat down, lock the door and close the gate.
