Front Ring Reserved!

Just a quick reminder, please check the calendar before you drive over to the building during non-class times. Occasionally we have parts of it reserved for pre-trial practice.

October 27th and 29th the front room will be used from 5-6:30pm both days for Freestyle practice. There will be music playing loudly for this practice. Please anticipate this prior to your arrival!

Volunteer Hours Updated!

Some of you reported that your volunteer hours total wasn’t showing in your profile. We now believe that we have fixed that problem.

Please note! Some of you have paid your dues, but we have not yet begun recording that in your profile. Please hold on to your email receipt for your paypal payments, and stay tuned for further updates to the website. Those records need to be updated by hand, and those will likely happen about once a week or every 10 days as time permits.

Notice From Membership Chair Re: 2021 Dues

Notice From the Membership Chair:

Re: Your 2021 Dues. End of year for your Volunteer hours is 9/30/20. Dues are Payable as of 10/31/20.

How to know the hours you worked: The total hours you have worked this past year and the dues amount will be on your profile page after you log into the website. To try to save GCDOC funds because of reduced class numbers and reduced number of events being held I am not going to do a mass invoice mailing for the dues. If you wish to have an itemized hours count please email me at

To access your profile in the member’s area: Press the Profile/Password button the left side as you scroll down the page. This will bring up your profile page. Scroll down the screen and the hours and dues amount will appear in boxes below.

PayPal payment will be available in the member’s area to pay your dues. If you are not paying by PayPal please send your dues payable to GCDOC to Tami Woodrow, 4921 Pacemont Ave, Dayton, Oh 45415. If you need a copy of the waiver please email me and I will send one to you.

Please remember to sign your waiver on the Member’s site or mail a hard copy to me along with your dues. If you e-sign the waiver online DO NOT mail me the hard copy. E-signing HAPPENS AUTOMATICALLY with the paypal payment!

Volunteer Hours & Dues!

Important Reminder!

Your volunteer hours and dues amount will not be in your account until at least 10/3/20!


We have a very specific method for tracking, calculating, and updating volunteer hours and dues. Sending money early greatly increases your risk of getting lost in the shuffle. Please hold on to your payment until after we announce that the volunteer hours are updated on the website and your total amount is listed.

If you have questions:

Membership Meeting Sept 30th

That’s right! We have a membership meeting on the calendar! And yes, we WILL be having it…


It won’t be quite the same as previous September membership meetings. With social distancing and lots of members who fall into high risk categories, we are going to be responsible citizens, and have a VIRTUAL meeting.


I know that for some of you that those magic boxes with electricity that make sounds and emit lights are scary. Someone might see a VIDEO of the INSIDE of your home with your DOGS! We promise, we will provide a phone number to dial in instead of sharing your video.


You might really enjoy seeing everyone else’s face without a mask on, and you might really like to see their dogs, too. And if that is the case, then certainly, jump on with your computer (that magic box previously mentioned).


Will be finalized at the September Meeting. If you would like to be considered for a position on the 2021 board, please contact Rick ( 

Volunteer hours…

Need to be turned in no later than Sept 30th, or they will be added to NEXT year’s hours.


Join us! On Wednesday, September 30th, at 7:30pm (it’s an off week for classes!)

Dial in, computer links, and everything else you need to know will be sent out the day before the meeting!

Public Class Registration NOW OPEN!

I have just opened the Obedience Class Registration to the PUBLIC. If you have that special friend you want to register, get them over there quick. We fully expect with limited class spaces that our classes will once again fill, as some of you have already experienced, some of the upper level classes filled with just our member only registration.

If the class day/time you wanted is not listed, it is because it is FULL!

Here, again, is the direct link to register.

Happy Training!

Obedience MEMBER ONLY Class registration open!

Attention members!

Obedience class registration will be open for ONE WEEK ONLY for you to early register as a member.

AFTER THE FIRST WEEK it will be open once again to the general public.

Going to the general website will not work, as I have hidden the registration to give our members first choice.

Important note! If you are using a voucher to pay for the class, you MUST now send your voucher to the registrar to secure your place in the class. The honor system has been taken advantage of, our club needs the money. No longer turning in the voucher is grounds for dismissal from the class and a paying customer taking your place.
