Bakersfield Obedience Training Club (BOTC) was founded in 1961
by a group of people who saw the need for a local club whose primary interest was obedience training for dogs. Today
the Bakersfield Obedience Training Club continues that vision by promoting responsible dog ownership in Kern County.
We offer obedience classes to the public, support worthwhile dog-related charities, and offer weekly informal competition
obedience practices. We also sponsor annual AKC-licensed Obedience and Rally Trials, and maintain an agility field
for club members' use.
