The Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club is a non-profit volunteer organization. It was established in 1951 by a group of dedicated trainers. Over the years LADOC members have held classes for the general public to help them address their dog training needs and to help their dogs become good public citizens. To date, over 6000 dogs and their owners in the Los Alamos community have been trained by LADOC instructors.

From LADOC’s Constitution, Article II Purpose:
” The purpose of the Club shall be to promote the training, exhibition, and welfare of dogs; to disseminate knowledge regarding training of dogs and their handlers and the breeding of pure-bred dogs; to hold and support obedience trials under the rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club (AKC) or the United Kennel Club (UKC) , but the Club shall not be limited to training in only those areas where the American Kennel Club or United Kennel Club has established rules and guidelines.”
