Southern Michigan Obedience Training Club ("SMOTC") was established in 1948 as a not-for-profit organization. All SMOTC trainers and assistants are unpaid volunteers who participate solely for the joy of the sport and the love of dogs. We are proud to be the only AKC Member Obedience Club in Southeastern Michigan.
Southern Michigan's primary goal is to teach people how to train their dogs so that the dogs can become better Canine Companions, and to encourage participation in dog activities such as AKC Obedience Competition, Rally, Tricks, and Therapy Dog work.
SMOTC welcomes dogs of all breeds, including mixed breeds, to all of our classes and events.
