Obedience Dog Training Club of Waterbury, Inc. (ODTCW)
The Obedience Dog Training Club of Waterbury, Inc., now located in Oxford, CT was founded in 1946. The club, run entirely by volunteers, is dedicated to the training of dogs and their handlers both for fun and for competition. We believe that all dogs benefit from obedience training and have helped thousands learn to train their dogs either as a better behaved pet or a highly trained obedience competitor.
For the Pet Dog, our Puppy class is designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. Our Beginner Obedience class (Family Manners) will help students learn to use positive reinforcement to teach basic commands and address common household problems.
Whether you plan to compete or just want to take your dog to that next level of training, our Manners & More class will help you learn the requirements of the AKC Canine Good Citizen Certificate (CGC) and at the conclusion of the 6 week class, the CGC test will be administered.
We provide all phases of competition training for American Kennel Club (AKC) and Companion Dog Sports Program (CDSP) Events – From Beginner all the way to Utility. We also offer Agility, Rally and Field training.
Our instructors are successful Obedience, Field, Rally and Agility competitors and are constantly seeking new and innovative teaching methods to fine-tune their instructional skills. It is our intention to encourage and promote the sport of dogs, their health and training and hope that you will use our facility in that spirit.
There are many benefits to becoming a member of ODTCW, from invitations to exclusive "Members Only Events" and advance notice of upcoming Trials, Seminars, etc. as well as discounts for certain classes. Join ODTCW to meet and learn from our members and their wide range of experience!
