The Old Pueblo Dog Training Club began as a group of enthusiasts who formed a club devoted to training dogs in obedience. We are getting back to our roots and why our club was formed in the first place. There are handlers in the Tucson area who are looking for more advanced AKC Obedience classes but unable to find them. We are going to put our focus on competitive AKC Obedience and Rally and we will not be offering any classes for puppies. We are going to meet every Wednesday evenings between 6 and 8 pm throughout the year (no summer break) beginning on September 7, 2022.
We are offering only one 6 weeks class, a Rally Novice class. The sign-up for the Rally Novice class is in person, on September 7, starting at 6:30. The class will start at 7 pm, and the fee for the class is $100 (check or cash only).
We will have several rings set up to practice competitive obedience, for achieving Beginner Novice (BN), Companion Dog (CD) and Utility Dog (UD) titles. Each handler will have ring time to either practice skills or to be taught skills/mentored by our instructors. These are drop-in “classes”, sign-in is in person, every Wednesday, between 5:45 and 7pm. The fee for the ring practice is $10/evening for OPDTC members and $15/evening for non-members.
