Our Club participates in the Purina Parent Club Partnership (PPCP)  Program to earn funding for canine health studies, education and/or rescue efforts that will benefit our breed. For information on becoming a member and to sign up, visit PPCP web site.





PLEASE NOTE: Pro Club Members redeem weight circles from bags of participating Purina brand dog food. Purina tracks these weight circle submissions and for every $100 of qualifying weight circle points earned by Pro Club members, Purina donates $10 to the participating national parent breed club.

The Club

The Otterhound Club of America was founded in 1960. The OHCA is a member club of the American Kennel Club, and is recognized by the AKC as the official parent club of the Otterhound in the United States. All OHCA members are encouraged to sign and abide by the Code of Ethical Conduct. The Club publishes a bi-monthly newsletter for its membership and has held a National Specialty every year since 1981.  

Every year, the OHCA sponsors a National Specialty in the fall and a Regional Specialty in Louisville, KY in March.  Public Education events are held around the country. Please visit our Events Calendar for opportunities to meet an Otterhound up-close and personal.
