City Obedience Training Club (OCOTC) was established
in 1952. The club is a not-for-profit
organization, that has continuously conducted classes in dog obedience training
since its formation.
Nearly every recognized breed of dog has been through the school, from pure bred
champions to those of doubtful parentage (mixed breed), and a percentage of those graduating
from the novice course have continued into advanced work, eventually earning AKC
(American Kennel Club) degrees.
focuses on the encouragement of interest in Obedience training and showing of
all breeds of dogs; the holding of classes for the purpose of instructing
individuals in the proper procedures of training them to train their dogs in
obedience; and the encouragement and holding of Obedience Trials under the rules
and regulations of the American Kennel Club (AKC).
