History of Bon-Clyde
The Bon-Clyde Learning Center was officially opened on November 10, 1990 with a grand open-house celebration. This event allowed people to view the training center and enjoy refreshments, demonstrations of our Obedience class dogs, door prizes, and much more.
The Center's name carries the legacy of my favorite dog, Clyde, an eight-year-old Rottweiler who died of cancer in 1989. One wall of the school is devoted to the memory of Clyde.
The original building was built by my father to house his antique button collection. Following my father's death in 1988, I decided the location would be excellent for my dream of a training center for dogs. After much remodeling and button removal, my dream began to take shape. (Yes, I still have a room which houses a large selection of the remaining buttons.)
Over the past 10 years, the demand for more classes and instructors led me to enlarge the facility to its present size and scope. After 10 years, my dream of a first-class dog training facility has become a reality. Through the support of a wonderful staff and great clients, I hope to continue with Bon-Clyde's reputation as "The South's Finest Dog Training Center".
