The All Breed Training Club of Akron, Inc. (ABTCA) was founded in 1949 by a small group of friends who enjoyed getting together to train their dogs. ABTCA became a member of the American Kennel Club in 1950. We enjoy teaching people to teach their dogs!
Our objectives for over 50 years have been to advance the best interests of dogs and dog manners, especially in the area of obedience training (which involves not only household manners, but dog shows, matches, obedience shows, field trials, and other exhibitions of obedience-trained dogs).
We are a nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code.
