Swansea Dog Obedience Club (SDOC) had its origins in a small summer obedience school operated by Judy Rich. The classes were held in Swansea Park, Toronto, hence the current name of the Club. The summer classes originated in 1970, but soon expanded to winter classes at West Park Public School, with Bob and Sylvia Milne coming on board with Judy.
