activities. Prospective members are required to attend at least two
HDOC meetings and their membership application must be sponsored by two
club members and approved by the Board of Directors.
Rally, Tracking Trials -
HDOC holds its annual AKC Obedience and Rally trials in early May. This
is a great opportunity to show your dog, meet club members, and help
out. Early in the year HDOC also holds an AKC Tracking Trial.
and Field Trips -
HDOC meetings may be held at different venues so club members may enjoy
outings with our friends and dogs. Meetings have included visits to the
beach, parks, restaurants, and hikes, lectures and demonstrations by
trainers, police dogs, chiropractors, etc. If you have a
suggestion for a meeting, please let us know.
Many HDOC members and their dogs have passed tests qualifying them to
work as Therapy Dog and handler teams. HDOC therapy dog and handler
teams visit nursing homes, hospitals, and other facilities, and may be
available to visit additional facilities on request.

regarding club meetings and activities, and contains articles relative
to canine health, legislation, training, and other areas of interest. A
