Let Us Introduce Ourselves.......

Glenbard All Breed Obedience Club, Inc. (GABOC) is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to educating dog owners to train their companion animals in basic and advanced obedience skills. We believe that an animal who knows and understands the five basic commands (heel, sit, down, stay, and come) is a better companion animal than one without training.

Training activities are scheduled year round, except for the month of July. Classes start at 6 p.m. and continue throughout the evening at 45-minute intervals, with the last classes at 9 p.m. Our qualified instructors and assistants are club members with years of experience training and showing dogs. Under the auspices of the Director of Training, instructors and their classes are continuously evaluated.

GABOC members participate in demonstrations and exhibitions; compete in obedience, tracking, agility, the breed ring and other avenues of dog-type activities.

We present educational seminars on dog-related topics, such as:
Wellness Clinic: including vaccinations, heartworm,and eyes,
Permanent identification: microchipping and tattooing,
Responsible pet ownership,
How to select a breed,
The law, you, and your dog,
How to enter your first dog show/trial
 

GABOC holds an annual obedience trial the first Saturday and Sunday in November. The trial's attendance consistently ranks in the top ten in the United States. Volunteers are always needed and welcome. GABOC also offers fun obedience matchs throughout the year. Please see the current schedule for the months that we will be holding our matches. Spectators are welcome. Even better, volunteer to steward (judge's helpers) and learn 'hands on' about the wonderful sport of dog obedience!

Your dog does not have to be a purebred to participate in GABOC training activities.
