The official name of this charitable, educational and nonprofit corporation is Obedience Training Club of Wichita Falls, Inc.; hereinafter referred to as "OTCWF". Unofficially, OTCWF is a.k.a. Dogs in Action.
Obedience training for dogs in Wichita Falls was originally performed by two separate clubs. In 1973, the two clubs merged to form The Obedience Training Club of Wichita Falls, Inc. (AKA: OTCWF). The merger involved applying to the State of Texas for incorporation as a non-profit organization and applying to the American Kennel Club (AKC) for affiliation. Since that process in 1973, OTCWF has operated as a 501c4 non-profit organization with American Kennel Club affiliation.
The club offers a myriad of dog-related training services to the North Texas and Southern Oklahoma area. OTCWF has no paid employees. All instructors and assistants are club members and volunteers. OTCWF guidelines require the lead instructor in each class to have trained and shown a dog, earning an appropriate AKC title before instructing a class. Most of the instructors have multiple titles on multiple dogs.
