ORKC held its first Tracking Dog Test (TD) on Sunday, December 5, 2004. In 2021, the club made history when it became the first club to hold a VST test in Tennessee. We are very proud of this accomplishment and grateful for the dedication and sacrifice by the many volunteers who make it possible to hold these tests.

  • Promote tracking training of our purebred dogs
  • Disseminate knowledge regarding tracking training
  • Conduct classes for the training of dogs and their handlers
