Welcome to the ABOTC
 

Every Wednesday evening, dozens of caring and concerned dog owners - just like you - come to the top of Flagpole Hill and have a wonderful time training their dogs.

Yes, it's hard work a few hours a week, but the rewards - for you and your dog - are boundless.

All our instructors work for free. They instruct your classes because they want to encourage dog obedience, and loving and caring for your dog.

We train you... to train your dog!

The dog obedience training you receive at ABOTC is worth so much more than you can ever pay. This training teaches you how to be a friend with your dog, helps him to become a better companion, and establishes a bond between a human and their dog.

 
   
Meet the trainers!
 

Nearly all our trainers are former ABOTC students with an average of 15 years of experience in training, showing, and raising dogs.

Each trainer has many years of training experience, not only on their own dogs, but with all breeds encountered at ABOTC. Every trainer is dedicated to making your ABOTC experience positive for you and your dog.

Teach Your Dog Good Manners At These Inexpensive Training Classes
March 13, 2012
 

All Breeds Obedience Training (At Flagpole Hill)
According to dog park gossip, this program brings the most bang for your buck and its central location is pretty choice (it's near White Rock Lake). This volunteer-led program provides both basic and continued dog training education, so that once you've mastered that whole "Sit, Stay, Down" bit you can work on more advanced maneuvers, like keeping his attention for extended periods of time.

An eight-week class costs $80, but if you rescued your pal from a shelter you get the class for $40. Awesome. After you've finished your basic course you can pay another $50 for unlimited classes for the rest of the year. You can't beat that.
