Members & Students of OCOTC
Thank you for your patience & support during these trying times. The most asked question is when will we reopen our doors and what changes & precautions will be made.
To accommodate social distancing and to follow the CDC recommended guidelines expect the following changes:
When we do resume, you can expect the following:
To allow for increased social distancing: we will
* Designate certain doors for certain classes to use as specific entrance and exits to better organize traffic flow.
* Adjust class size to help facilitate in social distancing.
* Adjust class times to minimize or eliminate passing between classes.
* Add markings on the floor and/ or walls to designate appropriate social distance from other students.
* To ensure continued cleanliness, we will:
* Ensure hand sanitizers are located throughout the building.
* Clean and disinfect high touch surfaces frequently.
* Our instructors will minimize or eliminate using students’ dogs for demonstration lessons.
* Will wear face masks.
Here is what we need from you!

If you are sick, please stay home!! We will be happy to catch you up or help you to reschedule your class if your absence is prolonged.

While attending Class at OCOTC:
Realize that when training your dog, the only things you absolutely need to touch are the dog and your own personal belongings & equipment. Avoid touching anything else.
Do not bring personal items into the facility (jackets, purses, bags). Please leave those locked in your vehicle, or at home. Bring only the minimum of what you need inside.
Plan ahead that only one person attends class with the dog. We will enforce this policy and ask others to wait in your vehicle.
Practice social distancing always.
Wash your hands and use hand sanitizer frequently. Look for the hand sanitizer placed throughout the facility.

Oklahoma City Obedience Training Club (OCOTC) has been training people to train their dogs for over 60 years. Every instructor past and present at OCOTC training classes is a volunteer. They volunteer because they are passionate about the well-being of the dogs in their community.
Nearly every recognized breed of dog has been through the school, from pure bred champions to All American Dogs of mixed breed, and a percentage of those graduating from the novice course have continued into advanced work, eventually earning AKC (American Kennel Club) degrees.
Classes are held at the OCOTC Training Facility,
6629 NW 23rd
OCOTC 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).
The club is a not-for-profit organization.
A Therapy Dog Program provides training for volunteer dogs and handlers for doing therapy work in local hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and shelters and for disaster relief.
The OCOTC Scholarship Program
Provides some financial relief for a veterinary student at Oklahoma State University who is in their third year of Vet School.
FACT: OCOTC is the first AKC club in Oklahoma to be approved to host AKC Scent Work Trials. In 2017 we held two of the very first Oklahoma AKC Scent Work trials!
Come be part of this awesome legacy and sport. You do not need to be a member of the club to participate!
