Port Chester Obedience Training Club's 10,000 square-foot training facility is located in White Plains, NY with easy access from Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam Counties, as well as Connecticut, Long Island, and New York City.
PCOTC recently installed state-of-the-art flooring called Agilflex. We are fully heated and air-conditioned, making us the only year-round agility training facility in Westchester County. Our space has high ceilings, a large crating area, and access for the handicapped including a ramped entrance and toilet facilities. We have a small kitchen area with sink, microwave, and refrigerator. In the summer of 2011, we added a second, smaller training room on the second floor of an adjacent building, which we call our "Upper Level" on our class schedule.
Our facility is a 25-minute train ride from Grand Central Station to North White Plains station; we are about one mile from the station. Dogs are allowed on the train during off-peak hours and ride the train for free.
Individual rentals are reserved for volunteering PCOTC members and PCOTC instructors only. Outside groups may rent the facility for dog-related training or programs. To rent the space, please email email@example.com for availability.
There is plenty of free parking on the street. You may park in the marked slots behind the building after 5 P.M. or on weekends, but not during the day. Your car may be towed if you do.
