Events and Activities

Each year, HOT hosts American Kennel Club (AKC) Obedience and Rally Trials and TD, TDX and VST Tracking Tests if you are interested in pursuing a tracking title.  HOT hosts several Agility Trials, on site, in our agility field and holds AKC Canine Good Citizen® Tests, and Show 'n Go's in obedience, rally and agility, 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. 

Check the following list for information and details about upcoming events and activities.   Be sure to visit our SmugMug site to see photos and results from past events.

 

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.
