Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and based on directives from Douglas County and the State of Nebraska (see links below), Companion Dog Club will not be holding any training classes and Member Training times through the month of April or until notified otherwise. The health and safety of our students and instructors (dogs too) is of upmost importance. Therefore, we feel this is best for everyone involved. Members with Trainers Pass Keys are still be allowed to use the building for training, but at their own risk and in compliance with current Douglas County and State of Nebraska restrictions and guidelines.
Hopefully, we will be able to have our regularly scheduled classes very soon. Any classes which started prior to the initial building closure will resume where they left off once we have reopened. If you have any questions, please contact us.

COMPANION DOG CLUB is the oldest obedience club in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area. Established in 1959 as a non-profit organization, it has grown from modest beginnings to a membership of nearly 100 people, most of whom are actively showing in obedience, working to prepare for show, or involved in other dog related events.
From puppy kindergarten to advanced training, we offer several levels of classes aimed at a variety of needs: from the pet owner who wants a well mannered member of their household to the person preparing to compete in the obedience ring. In addition to our obedience classes, we also offer agility classes. Most of our classes are taught by instructors who have trained their own dog(s) to an obedience and/or agility title.
Although Companion is primarily an obedience training organization, many members are involved in other activities with their dogs. The club has an active flyball team and supports agility training. Many members also participate in field work, conformation, den trials, herding tests, tracking, lure coursing, barn hunt and pet-facilitated therapy.
As you can see, Companion Dog Club offers a wide variety of classes and activities.
If the Omaha Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, Companion’s classes will also be cancelled.
