Registration is now open for upcoming dog training classes at Lomita Park, in Lomita.

Tracking is an old sport that is experiencing a rise in popularity.

A dog and handler team follow a person’s footsteps to locate a “lost” object. 

It is not physically stressful, so fits well into nearly everyone’s life (puppies, older dogs, and dogs competing in other sports can all benefit). 

In this class dogs and handlers will learn the foundation to prepare for AKC tracking titling events.  

All classes are offered through the nonprofit Lomita Obedience Training Club at Lomita Park 24428 Eshelman Avenue
