The Coeur D’Alene Dog Fanciers is an American Kennel Club (AKC) affiliated club dedicated to promoting responsible dog ownership, responsible breeding practices and care of all dogs through education and example. Our objectives are to provide low-cost training classes, and educational programs. We support dog owners and educational projects that benefit our whole community.

The Coeur d’Alene Dog Fanciers was organized in May 1983 after a group of North Idaho dog enthusiasts recognized the need for a local American Kennel Club all-breed club. In 2009, CDADF acquired a training facility to offer training classes to the general public, enabling the club to share their many years of accumulated canine knowledge and expertise. 



CdADF provides demonstrations and has a booth at the North Idaho Pet Expo

Public Outreach


Club Members participate in local parades.



CdADF presented safety vests to the Coeur d'Alene police dogs.
