The Old Pueblo Dog Training Club began as a group of enthusiasts who formed a club devoted to training dogs in obedience. Established in 1948, Old Pueblo Dog Training Club is the oldest obedience training club in Tucson, Arizona. We are an all volunteer non-profit club. Our club's goal is to help owners understand and enjoy their pets by forming and strengthening the bond between dogs and their owners.
Our club's philosophy and approach is:
We do not train your dog.
We train you to train your dog.
Our club's goal is to help owners understand and enjoy their pets by forming and strengthening the bond between dogs and their owners.
Old Pueblo Dog Training Club offers:
Experienced instructors and proven, gentle, positive training methods.
AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program emphasizing socialization and basic obedience.
Basic obedience classes for the family companion.
Training for obedience competition.
Rally classes for fun as well as competition.
AKC obedience and rally trials each year for purebreds and mixed breeds.
Canine Good Citizen training and tests.
Our Core Values
Community based training resource.
An All Volunteer orginization.
A portion of proceeds raised through our annual trial goes to support local causes.
Our classes are taught by volunteer instructors and assistants who trained multiple dogs, some of them are actual AKC-approved evaluators, and judges. However, we do need more volunteers who can be assistants to the instructors, help set up and tear down the rings, and help with administrative tasks. We are introducing a new way to appreciate our volunteers, the "OP Points". When you volunteer for a specific job during the classes and/or at our yearly trial, you will earn credit to be used for future classes, practices, and trials. These points will be tracked on our website so you don't have to worry about losing a piece of paper.
Please volunteer to help with the classes and the upcoming trial!
