“We do a lot of fun things here with dogs. Yes, some of our members are competitive, I compete in the sport of god obedience and agility but not everybody does and some people come here strictly to just have a better dog they want to learn basic obedience they want to fun,â€ť said president of the Forest City Dog Training Club Rick Lilly.
