Our Mission

The Houston Obedience Training Dog Club was formed in 1964 to encourage and assist members and other interested persons to train their dogs to compete in trials according to the American Kennel Club and United Kennel Club Rules and Regulations.

Classes & Rentals

H.O.T. offers Obedience, Rally and Conformation classes in our indoor, air conditioned, fully-matted ring to the public and club members.  Classes offered include Puppy, Basic and AKC Canine Good Citizen® for those just starting out and Pre-Novice through Utility for those wishing to compete in Obedience Trials.  We offer classes to prepare students for Rally Competition as well as classes for those interested in Tracking.  All levels of Agility classes are offered in our lighted, regulation Agility field.  Jump to our CLASS CALENDAR to see start dates of future classes. Not sure which class you should take -- check here for class descriptions and pre-requisites or email our Training Director at classes@hotdogclub.org.

Complete class descriptions, pre-requisites, and the current training schedule may be found on the classes page of this website.  You must pre-register for classes - walk-ups are NOT accepted. You may pay online with PayPal, HOWEVER, your registration is NOT COMPLETE until we have your money, a signed application and a copy of your rabies certificate.

You may mail your application to us at the address below, fax it to 281-978-2242, or scan and email it to classes@hotdogclub.org. Your complete application and payment must be received prior to the start date of your class in order for you to receive notification that you have been accepted into the class.  We cannot contact you if we don't have a copy of your application!

H.O.T. rents the building and agility field to individuals and clubs for personal training time, seminars and workshops.  Check our RENTAL CALENDAR for available slots and details on how to make reservations. 

Activities and Events

Club sponsored activities and events include American Kennel Club (AKC) licensed Obedience, Rally and Agility trials, and licensed Tracking Dog, Tracking Dog Excellent and Variable Surface Tracking tests.  HOT holds Obedience, Rally and Agility Show 'n Gos as well as AKC Canine Good Citizen® tests throughout the year.  Seminars, workshops and clinics in obedience, rally and tracking are offered to help prepare our club members and students to compete with their dogs.  We have also hosted NAFA Flyball Tournaments and were one of the first groups in Houston to have a Flyball team.

Members of the H.O.T. Dog Club support the dog community by entering in and stewarding for other organization’s Obedience, Rally and Agility trials and by participating in or serving as tracklayers for area tracking tests.  Be sure to visit our membership page to learn more about the benefits of joining HOT.

We would like to invite anyone interested in the H.O.T. Dog Club to attend our monthly meeting on the First Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Mendenhall Community Center, 1414 Wirt Rd. 

We now have a "Notification HOTLine" that you can call to find out if class has been cancelled when there is bad weather in the area. Call (281) 978-2242 to get the status of tonight's classes. 

This now gives our students 3 options: we'll continue to post on our Facebook page, mark the online Class Calendar and change the message on this phone number. Please note that this is a separate number from the club's main number - so be sure to add it to your phone's directory if you are a HOT Dog Club student.
