Redondo Beach Police K9 Trials                                                                                                    Saturday,  May 8, 2010                                                                                                                                       The annual Police K9 trials will be held on the Redondo Beach High School football field. The event is FREE and will start at 9:00 am. Keep in mind that different activities are performed through out the day and are not repeated after their completion. I think there are 5 different activities the Officers compete in and once all the Officers have competed in that event they all move to next one. It is a fun day, come and enjoy

Fido and Friends Walk Sunday                                                                                                               March 8, 2009 

For the second year in a row, The Dog Obedience Club of Torrance was a sponsor at the Annual Fido and Friends Walk on March 8th. The Fido Walk, held at Veterans Park in Redondo Beach benefits the Wellness Community, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free support, education and hope to people with cancer and their loved ones.

March Meeting - Paws 4 Healing program:                                                                                          Dennis Cajili with Paws 4 Healing & Delta Society spoke to DOCOT of his experiences, the program in general and answered questions from the audience.

Dennis (the man) – a program manager for Boeing, always knew he wanted to give something back to the community. He did volunteer work supporting both the Redondo Beach Police Department and the Redondo Beach Fire Department. He found that this helped provide a balance to his work and home life. Then one day while on an outing with his dog Riley, he happened upon a testing session for the Canine Good Citizenship certification and learned about Therapy Dogs and Animal Assisted Activities. This he thought, could be the perfect balance, - a way to “give back” and not leave his dog at home while doing it.

February Graduating Class                                                                                                                    Tuesday, February 17, 2009
The latest Novice Class graduation had 14 dogs out of an original class of 20 despite a ten week course that was stretched out by two weeks off for the Christmas and New Years holidays. The determined group made an impressive showing for the two ring judges. As an added incentive, in addition to the usual white, red and blue ribbons for third, second and first place finishes presented by the Ring Judges Amy and Tammy, the "Animal Lovers Pet Shop" provided prizes for the top three finishers which were presented to the winners by Rick.


Christmas Party Sunday                                                                                                                   December 7, 2008
The Halle's graciously offered their home for the DOCOT Christmas party, and the Club members eagerly accepted their offer. (Click the wreath for pictures.) Everyone agreed that it was a perfect party house, and a great debut for the Halle's newly remodeled and very beautiful kitchen. It was an evening of good food (mostly prepared by Cindy and very yummy) and good friends complete with Santa Bingo, opening Holiday Crackers, a gift exchange game, and watching the neighborhood show of Holiday festivities. Indie appeared to have a great time, too (choosing a couple of gifts for himself when no one was looking)....
Thank you Cindy and Randy....it was a wonderful evening!
