Welcome to Club Canine

Club Canine caters to the physical, emotional and mental needs of canines. It is a place where all dogs are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. Our staff is made up of caring professionals who strive to make each dog that enters feel safe and comfortable.

She has a Master’s Certification in Dog Training and Behavior Modification from the North State Canine Academy and a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work with a minor in Sociology from Appalachian State University. Her dream of Club Canine started years ago when she saw the need for dogs to have a place to connect with other canines for the socialization they crave.

Traci is past president of the Caldwell Humane Society, Inc. and the founder of Fido’s Fence, a non-profit organization that builds fences for chained dogs.  She has served on the Caldwell County Dangerous Dog Appeals Board, and is a member of The Association of Pet Dog Trainers and the International Pet Boarding and Pet Services Association.

Traci is dedicated to providing your dogs with exceptional care and the highest standards in customer service.  She is the proud owner of three dogs including her canine assistant trainer, Steppin’ Wolf Haus Brezel and a cat.

Pets of the Homeless
  Club Canine cares for dogs of the homeless!

Pets_of_the_HomelessMany of the homeless people in our area have found companionship and love with pets. Like their owners,  many times these dogs go without food or eat whatever their owners can find for them.

Club Canine has teamed up with the Hickory Soup Kitchen in Catawba County to feed homeless dogs in our area.

We serve as a collection site for Pets of the Homeless.  Please consider helping these homeless dogs by bringing in a bag of food or a case of canned dog food.  Visit petsofthehomeless.org.
