Community Outreach

OTCWF works throughout the year in the Wichita Falls area bringing information on dog related subjects to the public.  We use AKC supplied material and information to help with their mission.  At every event we have our loyal, calm, well trained fur partners at our sides. When we draw attention out in public, it is not because our dogs are dragging us, choking themselves, or menacing the public. It is because they are there with us, as part of the team. They do obedience demos, agility demos, therapy visits, or just go for a walk in the park — in each instance they are there as good representatives of the Canine Good Citizens they are. Our dogs are always willing to show their skills, just as our member on the other end of the lead is willing to offer assistance when questions are asked. concerning problems which might be addressed during various outings. The following is a list of the events Obedience Training Club of Wichita Falls members are involved with on a regular basis. If you love dogs - come join us!
