The Next Puppy Classes
The Next Beginner Classes

Nina Anne Herdes


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ed Herdes’ beloved wife of 71 years, Nina, on July 4th. Although we did not see Nina’s friendly smile as often as Ed’s, she was involved with the club in many behind-the-scenes ways. Each year, for more years than memory serves, she handmade the crate mats that were coveted raffle prizes at the Annual Dinner; even personalized mats. And if that was not enough, she created the table centerpieces for many annual dinners. In addition to that, she also was the Christmas Party Hostess who started the tradition of setting up a beautiful and festive food table.


On Saturday, August 7th, there will be a Memorial Service beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Fox Valley Presbyterian Church, 227 East Side Drive, Geneva. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.



Revised COVID Policy (July 22)


In accordance with the CDC guidelines, the governor's instructions, and our own desire to keep our members and guests safe, FVDTC has revised our guidelines. As of July 22:

  • There are no restrictions on the number of trainers in the building
  • There is no need to sign up for timeslots for drop-in classes, but you can reserve a time slot by logging into the Class Signup. People who have signed up online will have priority over drop-in trainers.
  • Puppy, Advanced Puppy and Beginner class members should continue to use the normal registration process
  • Masks are optional, but recommended for vaccinated members and guests. Masks will continue to be required for members and guests in the training building who have not yet been fully vaccinated against COVID-19


Please contact us if you have any questions.
