Welcome to the wonderful world of dog training

The Obedience Club of Daytona is a not-for-profit club founded in 1982.

Founding Dogs of OCOD taken at our first training grounds at James Park, South Daytona in 1983. From Left to right: Star (Mary Davis), Tasha (Chris Franczek), Rusty (Tracy Moore), Flasha (Diane (now) Schultz), Shalimar (Janet (now) Narushka) and puppy (Mary Davis)

All of our instructors are volunteers so that fees may go towards club projects. Most of our instructors have earned AKC titles for their dogs, and compete in obedience and agility competitions. Many attend dog-training and dog-related clinics, workshops and seminars on a regular basis to stay on top of the latest positive-training methods to better teach you how to improve your skills as a trainer. We have teachers that are certified from (NADOI) National Dog Obedience Instructors. 

We invite you to explore our site to see our class scheduletrials and events.  We include our Chatter-Barks newsletter and photos from past events.  You can also download an application for classes

We welcome new members, with or without a dog, to come learn to train dogs and be part of the Obedience Club of Daytona. You are welcome to observe our classes before registering. All new members must complete an application form and pay a one-time joiner fee and annual dues.

We have a group of Therapy Dogs and handlers who enjoy the very rewarding experience of visiting local nursing homes and hospitals. These dogs are at least one year old and have at least basic obedience skills. To learn more about how to participate in this rewarding experience, watch the video at the Alliance of Therapy Dogs website.
