SOABDC is not currently equipped to handle dogs w/ behavioral or aggressive issues
. As a respected
dog club in our community, the Club reserves the right to deny membership for any situation
that may in any way potentially harm the reputation of or cause disruption for the Club and its
activities within the community.
We can email an application to you, but we cannot accept filled out applications via email.
Your dues should accompany your application; we accept cash and personal checks made out
to Southern Ohio All Breed Dog Club for deposit only.

While we may have some breeders within our Club membership, SOABDC does not publically
promote
any pet stores nor breeders selling dogs/puppies to the public. We are not a rescue
organization, but have some people we can refer you to if you need assistance with rehoming a
dog or puppy
.
FACT: We welcome mixed
breed as well as pure
breed dogs for participation
in Rally, Obedience, Agility,
Jr. Showmanship, 4H, & as
registered therapy dogs.
Spay/neutering is also
acceptable for these
categories but is not
mandatory.
FACT: We are an all breed
dog club dedicated to
bringing dog activities &
education to our community
involving dogs. We are
not
an animal rescue and do
not take in dogs. We DO
have members in our club
who handle humane dog
rescuing, but the club itself
does not handle such.
FACT: SOABDC now has over
80 household memberships
(many being family
memberships) and has
representations of all 7
AKC-recognized dog breed
groups within our current
membership.
AWESOME!
FACT: Any well mannered
dog can become a
registered therapy dog.
Fancy breeding and/or
registration papers are
NOT necessary!
Best Dressed Dog Winner in 2011:
Little Bear
Set Up For our Fall Fun Match in 2011
FACT: A dog can be
successfully  trained
regardless of its age. It's
NEVER too late to start!
FACT: Typical therapy dog
visits are around an hour in
length at a facility, but our
therapy dogs put in
2 hour
shifts at our local public
libraries!
FACT: There's a potential
for good & bad within any
breed of dog. Always
remember-it's
The Deed,
not the Breed
!
