FDSA Training Camp 2024

Join your favorite FDSA trainers hosting three action-packed days of Obedience, Rally, Agility, Nosework, Freestyle, Rally-FrEe, lectures, labs, and more … all taught FDSA style!

The Main Event

FDSA Training Camp

Held once a year, FDSA Training Camp is an opportunity for dog enthusiasts to learn, train, and socialize with others who share their passion. Students will see old friends, make new ones, and learn and train using FDSA methodology, all within an environment that emphasizes respect for both dogs and their handlers.

Our presenters are all recognized for excellence within their fields. And our lectures and labs include something for everyone — from the hard core dog sports enthusiast to the professional pet dog trainer, with everything in between!

FDSA students may purchase a working pass for hands-on help, live! Non-FDSA students are welcome to attend as auditors. Please note that space is limited, so don’t wait. We hope you’ll consider joining us – we’d love to meet you!

Over 70 Sessions

This year camp has 70+ sessions for you to choose from! Working spots can choose 2 sessions a day to work with their dogs (chosen during registration).

Auditors and working spots who aren’t working that session can choose to sit in on any active session.

New and Popular Topics

Each year we bring back some of the favorites from previous years and then introduce new topics (and new presenters) to ensure there’s something for everyone!

Topics covered include Obedience, Rally, Agility, Nosework, Freestyle, Rally-FrEe and more!

Lectures, Labs, and More!

Over the course of 3 days, you’ll have the opportunity to join us for lectures, labs, and more.

Lectures are people-only, on topics from behavior modification to cooperative care; labs include our popular handler’s choice and traditional seminar-style working labs.

Social Events (FDSA Style)

In addition to all the formal learning, Camp is also an excellent place to meet and talk with other FDSA students! 

Our team will organize a few official camp events, but we encourage you to talk to other campers and meet up for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and your own outings!

Want to make sure you stay in the loop on all of the latest happenings?

(And have a chance to chat with other campers to arrange room shares, travel, or other events?)
