RESUMING CLASSES SOON. PLEASE STAY TUNED.
A quality relationship between a dog and its owner should be the goal of every breeder and trainer. This is true here at Topnotch. We believe that all dogs need boundaries and training. Consistent and patient training should start from the very first day and continue through the dog's lifetime. Positive reinforcement and lots of praise and love are the foundation for successful training and lasting, rewarding companionship.
We believe that this can be achieved in our training classes and look forward to working with you and your dog.
We often get asked and appreciate the opportunity to provide some background on our logo and brand.
Obedience Trial Champion (OTCH) title is often referred to as the “Ph.D.” for dogs and is the highest obedience honor a dog can receive. To compete in the AKC National Obedience Championship, dogs must be the top OTCH and OTCH-pointed dogs in their breed. In 2018, there were 118,316 entries in AKC obedience trials, and only 69 OTCH titles earned. You can find more information at AKC.org.
When our logo was developed many years ago, it was stylized to emphasize OTCH, representing a pinnacle of achievement and a distinctive characteristic in a crowded market segment.
