Welcome to OTCHPA.
Members MUST attend one meeting each year and must help at two functions during the year.
Functions could include registration, teaching a class or assisting at one,
stewarding at a show and go or a trial.
We Train You to Train Your Dog!
The Obedience Training Class of Harrisburg (OTCH) is a sanctioned United Kennel Club (UKC) dog obedience club.
We offer classes based upon UKC and American Kennel Club (AKC) format.
We also offer shows and trials:
- UKC conformation shows, and UKC obedience, rally obedience and agility trials;
- C-Wags (Canine-Work and Games) Scent and Rally Obedience trials;
- CDSP (Companion Dog Sports Program) obedience trials.
All of our performance events encourage mixed breed dog owners to participate and earn titles.
*** Added 4/1/2020 *** ATTENTION OTCH MEMBERS AND STUDENTS**
In compliance with Governor Wolf’s most recent order, OTCH will be closed for group and individual training until at least May 3rd. Any events that were planned between now and that date are to be considered cancelled. The OTCH board will meet again on April 21st to discuss the situation and evaluate our options going forward. **STUDENTS** Individual updates will be provided by your instructor. Just a reminder that we will continue classes where we left off, once we can safely reopen.
**ATTENTION KEYHOLDERS** The building is considered closed and is **not** available for individual training as the entire state is on stay-at-home orders. For students, individual updates will be provided by your instructor. Just a reminder that we will continue classes where we left off, once we can safely reopen. Please check for updates on Facebook or our website.
Please take reasonable precautions to stay safe and healthy. We look forward to serving you again, as soon as we can legally and safely do so.
