About SADTC

SADTC Group

The San Antonio Dog Training Club (SADTC) was founded in 1961. We are an all volunteer organization of approximately 50 members dedicated to the training of dogs to be loving and well-behaved companions of the household. We do this by teaching you to teach your dog using positive training techniques. We also provide training for those people who are interested in the competitive sport of dog obedience. The club typically offers one to two American Kennel Club (AKC) obedience and rally trials a year; one in March and occasionally one in June or July.

Over the years we have volunteered with various organizations such as the Hill Country Animal League, Therapy Animals of San Antonio, and the San Antonio Humane Society. Starting in January 2016 our classes will be held Saturday mornings and Monday evenings at the St. George Maronite Catholic Church, 6070 Babcock Rd., San Antonio, TX 78240. Our volunteers have given obedience and rally demos, helped train older shelter dogs to walk on a leash, to sit and stay, among other basic skills to help make them more adoptable. We have also temperament tested the shelter dogs to insure that the dogs will be placed with the right families. In 2005 the club provided 500 hours of disaster relief for animal victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.In 2008 the club again stepped up to help with animal victims of Hurricane Ike.

Our members also enjoy various outings such as picnics and parties that include our dogs.

The club's business meetings for 2016 are held the first Thursday of the month at 7:30PM. Our meetings will be held at the Therapy Animals of San Antonio Office at 5815 Callaghan Rd Suite 104 Summit II building, San Antonio, TX 78228. If you'd like to get to know us, please feel free to attend a club meeting or come watch a training class. See the Training Schedule for more details.
