The Obedience Club of San Diego County, Inc. was founded in 1949 by a responsible and insightful group of dog fanciers whose goal was to share their knowledge and expertise with the dog-owning community.
The Club's mission is to provide high quality instruction for both pet and competitive dog owners at a reasonable price. We welcome all dogs whether they need basic training or are dogs ready for competition.
The Obedience Club of San Diego County regularly conducts annual AKC Licensed Obedience and Scent work Trials, as well as providing testing for the AKC's Star Puppy, Canine Good Citizen and Temperament Test (ATT) programs.
All of our instructors have extensive training experience, and have earned multiple titles in a variety of dog sports including Obedience, Rally, Scent Work, Tracking, Trick, Conformation and Agility.
Our classes help you and your dog develop a trusting and positive relationship. We offer a variety of courses for raising happy, cooperative dogs by providing them with a strong foundation for a wide variety of competitive dog sports. In addition, our instructors utilize a variety of training methods to teach fun, interesting activities and exercises, in a positive supportive class environment.
Training classes are typically held Tuesday thru Thursday evenings at the San Diego Zoo parking lot.
Our basic obedience classes run for one hour a week, for 8 weeks. We also offer specialty classes for those wishing to compete in dog sports. Free drop-in classes for Rally, Obedience, Scent Work and Conformation are also offered to our members.
Please refer to the course and drop in schedule for class offerings, registration and start times.
We hold our General Meetings on the Third Wednesday of the following months at 7:00 p.m.. Our General Meetings are currently being held via Zoom.
The "June With Joan" event is a unique experience involving an evening at the Pillsbury Ranch during which Joan Embery and her staff of animal handler's present an educational program involving the various animals they keep on the Ranch and stories of her lifetime commitment to wildlife conservation.
