This is to notify you that beginning the first Wed. of May, 2023, we have been holding dog training classes at our new location: The East Point Venue, 1430 East Joliet Street, Crown Point, IN 46307. (Our mailing address will remain unchanged: DDTC, P.O. Box 380, Hebron, IN 46341.)

When you are at the light at Broadway & 113th Street/South Street (near Gelsosomos Pizzeria), you would go West on 113th and the building is on the Left before you reach the stop sign at Hwy. 231. This is the old Crown Point BMV building, just behind First Savings Bank of Hegewisch, and across the street from the girls’ softball fields (back side of Crown Point Sports Complex).

Hope to see you at our new location!

p.s. This is a new "temporary" location for us...we are still actively seeking a more permanent home...if you know of anything that may be a good possibility, please contact us!
