The Elings Meadow at Girsh Park is the home to Goleta Valley Dog Club, Inc. The club was founded by a group of individuals devoted to having fun with their friends; both two and four legged. Goleta Valley Dog Club, Inc, takes great pride in providing an atmosphere that is beginner, family, and community friendly, while also providing a place for our more advanced dog sport athletes to practice and learn. We offer classes to the public in the areas of Agility and Rally Obedience, and also training classes called Fun with Focus.

GVDC offers agility and training classes throughout the week. For more information about their schedules and classes click here to go to their website.
