Who We Are
Lomita Obedience Training Club (LOTC) is a nonprofit dog training club run by volunteers and is located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, California. We have been providing companion dog training classes and competitive sports dog training classes to the community since 1954.
Our dog training classes include puppy socialization & manners, companion dog manners, tricks, dog obedience, AKC Rally, AKC Conformation and Parkour for your dog. Most dog training classes are offered through Lomita Parks and Recreation, held in a secure, fenced area, and Rolling Hills Estates Parks and Recreation.
Our instructors are club members with years of experience and have helped hundreds of families train their dogs. They use training techniques based on positive reinforcement and marking desired behavior. They can also provide consultation services for special problems.
I’ve been a member of LOTC since 1988 but have been training dogs since I was a young girl. I’ve also bred Miniature Pinschers and achieved a variety of competitive titles on them including a Utility AKC Obedience title. If you know Min Pins…you know that’s not an easy accomplishment!
LOTC provides me the opportunity to share my experiences and the knowledge I’ve developed over the years. Especially the fact that training can be fun for you AND your dog! The current force free methods are very effective and a great approach for achieving your goals. I also enjoy interacting with the families from our communities and ensuring they make the best possible start with their new puppies and dogs.
