IPOC was formed in 1963 to assist Polk County dog owners in training their dogs in house manners and to train for and hold American Kennel Club obedience competitions.
As different dog sports were developed, IPOC's training program has grown to include agility, and conformation classes. We have weeknight classes at our Training Center off Drane Field Rd. near the Lakeland Airport.
This facility allows us to hold AKC obedience trials, United Kennel Club obedience and agility trials, and seminars -- indoors in climate-controlled comfort. Most class sessions run from 6:00pm through 9:00pm -- visitors are welcome to come on by (but don't bring dogs, and please introduce yourselves to an instructor).
For more information or to register for a class session, call and leave us a message with your name, class of interest, and an evening phone number.
IPOC is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) corporation. All class sessions are conducted by club members, many with years of teaching and training experience. All are unpaid volunteers, who work full time at other jobs. There is usually no one at the Center during the day to take calls or receive visitors.
