There is no age limit for the CGC test. A dog is never too old to be a good citizen.

Welcome to Marion Alachua-Dog Training Association



Marion-Alachua Dog Training Association (MADTA) is a volunteer, not for profit club that welcomes all dogs (mixed breed or pure bred) to our training classes in Obedience, Rally, Agility, and Conformation.

 Activities include AKC trials, matches, seminars, and special demonstrations. You do not have to become a club member to take advantage of our training classes.   

 A few weeks or months of diligent training can develop an understanding and friendship between dog and owner that will last a lifetime.

Madta logo MADTA is very proud of our group of  instructors and their assistants who volunteer to pass on their wealth of knowledge, in all the assorted disciplines we offer here at the club.  These dedicated "teachers" also find time to train and compete with their own dogs.
