RDOC Dog Obedience Club is an all volunteer organization dedicated to improving the relationship between pets and people by teaching responsible dog ownership and obedience classes. We are the only dog obedience organization in Richmond area granted a license by the American Kennel Club to hold obedience trials. Founded in 1959, the club has an excellent national reputation for outstanding training. Our program offers positive, humane techniques and discourages harsh methods. Many of our club members have won awards in local, national, and international competitions. We welcome our trainees to join our club. Besides offering classes, we perform obedience demonstrations for community groups, nursing homes, and schools.  Other club activities include: tattoo clinics, agility trials, obedience trials, rally trials, seminars and Canine Good Citizenship Tests. Our meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, and we welcome visitors.
