Welcome to Hub City Kennel and Obedience Club

Welcome to Hub City Kennel and Obedience Club


The training policy of HCKOC is one that relies on positive training methods such as clicker training, free shaping, and reward-based training. Our trainers are experienced in many areas of dog training and have first hand competition experience in numerous venues, including conformation, obedience, rally-o, agility, flyball, tracking, therapy dog, earthdog, and canine freestyle.

We strive to keep our training knowledge and skills current and relevant by attending seminars and workshops whenever possible.

Our classes are often taught by two or more trainers at a time, ensuring that each student has the opportunity for individualized attention and instruction when needed.
