The Vallejo Dog Training Club has been of service to dogs and their owners since October 12, 1949. In addition to our ongoing dog training classes, the club hosts annual dog training competitions and workshops, and our members participate in many other fun canine events. The club held its first AKC-sanctioned Obedience Trial on June 18,1950, at Corbus Field at Vallejo High.
The 1951 Obedience Trial was held at the Solano County Fairgrounds, and all subsequent trials have been held at this location. VDTC is an AKC affiliate club and a member of the AOCNC - Associated Obedience Clubs of Northern California.
We are a non-profit organization with community services being a high priority and are proud to maintain two memorial scholarships at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of California - Davis. The Beckye Austin Scholarship is given annually for a deserving student, in the area of small animal medicine, who resides in Solano or Napa counties, and the Neva Corboff Memorial Scholarship is given annually to a deserving student who is from the State of California.
Some of the other local projects we have been involved with include:
- Holding supply drives for the Benicia Vallejo Humane Society.
- Donation drive for Solano County Animal Control.
- Donations to BVHS Microchip and Spay/ Neuter Clinic.
- Donating agility equipment for the Vallejo PD Canine Unit.
- Purchasing animal respiratory masks for the Vallejo Fire Dept.
- Providing CGC certification testing for 4-H and dog rescue groups.
