Our purpose is to promote the advancement of well-behaved dogs and responsible dog ownership. CVOC is a non-profit organization founded in 1981. All our instructors are volunteers.
CVOC has community outreach programs. We sponsor public seminars and presentations. Our club members and training class graduates with certified therapy dogs regularly visit area hospitals, nursing facilities and participate in library reading programs.
CVOC offers dog obedience training classes, Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog International evaluations and testing to the public throughout the year.
See our CLASS SCHEDULE page for a list of classes and testing dates.
CVOC takes training etiquette very seriously. Polite behavior on the part of both dog and handler is expected as the norm. See our etiquette statement on the ABOUT US page and you can download a copy from the APPLICATIONS page.
