Using onlypositive reinforcement techniques to build confidence in both dog andowner,Lucky Dog Sports Club offers a training experience designed to last a lifetime; guiding, supporting and helping wherever, whenever and at whatever level needed.
From the beginningLucky Dog Sports Club took the Wiregrass community by storm. In addition to participating in PawsFest in Headland, both last year and this year, they joined other “dog people” to help make Bark in the Park a success in 2014 and again joins that event next month. In between events they were featured by PetSupermarket at the Customer Appreciation events (April, 2014; October 2014; and April, 2015), and PetSupermarketpartnered with Lucky Dog Sports Club’s in hosting LDSC’s Open House event (March 17, 2015). In addition, PetSupermarket and Lucky Dog will be presenting an “Ask the Trainer” event at PetSupermarketon the first Saturday of every month.
Lucky Dog is joining the Ashford Chamber of Commerce in the Chamber’s “Relay for Life” event to benefit the American Cancer Society.Lucky Dog will be hosting a Dog Walk at 9:00 am on April 25, 2015.The event is open to the public with a donation of $5.00 per dog.

Did you see Ultimate Air Dogs at the Porktobercue last September at the Farm Center?Lucky Dog Sports Club made that happen! What a great weekend that was for a bunch of “lucky dogs!” There were dogs flying all over the place!
Lucky Dog Sports Clubcontinues to offer Beginner, Intermediate and Novice Obedience classes, Rally Obedience, AKC Star Puppy,Control Unleashed and Trick Classes as well as some new classes:Manners (for owners who would like to improve their dog’s behavior); and, Outdoor Adventure, (to enable owners to handle their dogs in real life, everyday situations. The Canine Good Citizen evaluation graduates the student)
A few other great accomplishments took place. Several Lucky Dogs students, upon graduating Obedience training, took the Therapy Dog International certification test and, they passed! They are nowtherapy dogs. A lot of students took and passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluations and Community Canine evaluations; and, a bunch of Lucky Dogs have earned Tricks titles and have become great performers.
