The Huntsville Obedience Training Club is an AKC licensed dog club providing classes in many aspects of dog training. HOTC was founded on three basic principles. First, obedience is a full-time activity, a self-sustaining discipline, which is formal and unique. Second, the club would offer training to all dogs — from household pets to show dogs and from mixed-breeds to pure-breds. Third, the club would work for the betterment of dogs.

Christy and Bryan Williams
Hi, I am Christy Williams. My husband Bryan and I created Paws & Claws in 2001. Prior to becoming professional pet sitters, we both had employment and/or volunteer experience with several animal organizations including the Greater Huntsville Humane Society, Challenger’s House, and Huntsville Obedience Training Club. The experience we gained caring for the animals at GHHS and Challenger’s House is invaluable. We learned about animal behavior and body language, the effects of stress on animals, how to identify and treat illness, and so much more. We strongly believe that being a competent pet sitter requires not only a love of animals but also knowledge and experience. Our years of pet care experience allows us to identify the best way to care for each individual pet, and also how to handle any emergencies that may arise.
