HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER OF THE OCOTC?
Any person eighteen years of age or older, who has successfully trained and graduated a dog in regular training classes of the Club, OR successfully completed requirements for a CD title (at least), AND attended two training courses, AND who has attended three or more meetings of the Club is eligible (Volunteer Work at trials and workdays can be substituted for meetings). The Applicant must be sponsored by two club members in good standing, one of whom must have been the applicant's instructor
HOW OLD IS TOO OLD?
Your dog is never too old to learn. However, the classes can be fast paced with heeling exercises and if they have any joint problems, it may be too much for them to do. Use your own judgment and if your old dog is getting tired sit and take a rest.
HOW YOUNG CAN MY PUPPY BE IN ORDER TO START?
You can start training them at home as soon as you get them. OCOTC does recommend that they have had at least two sets of shots. This is usually around 12 weeks depending on the vet shot schedule. Puppies spread around diseases just like little kids and we don't want any of them getting sick. Rabies is not required for the Puppy Class. If your puppy is over 6 months, then they have to start in Beginners. All required shots including rabies should be completed. Proof has to be provided. State of OK requires that dogs have their first rabies shot by 6 months of age.
DO YOU PROVIDE VET SERVICES/MICROCHIPPING?
DO YOU PROVIDE SERVICE TRAINING?
No, however, we do have therapy dog classes, but this is NOT service dog training.

WHAT DAYS/TIMES ARE YOUR CLASSES?

CAN YOU GIVE ME HELP OVER THE PHONE?
