  • About MADTA

    Our History

    Founded in 1981, 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.

    MADTA is an affiliate of the American Kennel Club. 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.

    We use proven Positive Reinforcement training methods so that you and your dog consider our classes to be the best "game" yet! Dogs learn by doing "things" that are to their advantage and avoid "things" that are NOT to their advantage.

    This philosophy is the building block to training a happy dog that wants to please YOU.

    Our facility also provides opportunities for practice sessions and simulated dog show run-throughs. The training staff is always available to help you with any questions or problems that you may be experiencing with your dog, be it behavioral, or training.

    The goals of M.A.D.T.A. are to have every dog be a good canine citizen and a well-loved family member.
