The Amarillo Obedience Training Club was formed in 1978.  We are an American Kennel Club licensed obedience, rally, and agility club.   For more than 30 years our members have been helping owners teach their dogs to be better behaved members of the household and preparing dogs to compete in AKC obedience, rally and agility trials.

Classes for the general public and club members are held year round.  Classes include Puppy Kindergarten, Household Manners, Basic Obedience/CGC (skills needed to pass the AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Test), and all levels of Obedience and Rally up through the highest levels of AKC competition.

Obedience classes are held at our indoor facility located at 8175 S. Osage. The property is fenced with red pipe and located 1/4 mile North of the Loop on Osage, and 4.5 miles South of I-40 on Osage.

Agility classes are held outdoors on our fully fenced grass-covered field which is located  on Lakeside Dr. (S.E. Loop 335) on the east side of Amarillo.  Foundation classes through upper level competition classes meet Spring through Fall. 

AOTC hosts 2 three-day AKC Agility Trials each year on New Year’s weekend and Memorial Day weekend, and 1 two-day AKC Obedience and Rally Trial. 

A.O.T.C. MISSION STATEMENT:

  • Educate the public on the care and training of dogs for the betterment of the quality of canine lives in our community.

  • Promote the sports of obedience, rally and agility for purposes of fair competition for all involved and the safety of competitive dogs.

  • Become a resource for members of our club and of the community on dog related activities.

The Amarillo Obedience Training Club is composed of dog lovers and trainers from all walks of life.  The club is recognized by The American Kennel Club ... AKC.

As a service organization to the community, our members strive to educate persons of all ages about dog care and training.

Although AKC is a purebred dog organization, A.O.T.C. offers classes to dogs of pure and mixed breed origin.  AKC now includes mixed breed dogs in many of their performance titling events!
