Out of concern for our teachers and students, in order to limit potential exposure to COVID-19, OCOTC has decided to delay the start of new classes until June, 2020 at which time classes will resume.
NOTICE: From the Training Director
Due to the new restrictions imposed by the President of the United States and the Mayor of Oklahoma City concerning the pandemic of Covid 19 and the sheltering in place. We are postponing the start of new classes until the 1st of June. Notices will be sent out for the exact start date closer to time. Please check our website http://www.ocotc.com for any further updates in the meantime.
To the Membership: With the closing of OCOTC's school & the need to avoid spreading the virus we are asking that no one train at the building until further notice. Training Director

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!
