Welcome to Columbia, South Carolina's 

Home for Canine Activities!

  In addition to our classes, there is a lot going on in our club


Due to the Increasing COVID Numbers GCOC is requiring

Mask to be worn during Classes and Events

Earlier this year when the numbers had decreased the Board removed the Mask Mandate

At that time we stated if either Richland or Lexington County Rates went above

5% we would return to the Mask Required Policy

The numbers have been higher than 5% for a while and both Counties are listed as having a High Transmission Rate


List is in order of date

We love dogs!


The Greater Columbia Obedience Club, Inc. (GCOC) is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1968 to promote the sport of dog obedience. GCOC is an all-volunteer organization made up of local dog sport enthusiasts. 


The club is sanctioned by the American Kennel Club (AKC) to hold obedience, rally, and agility trials in the area. We hold several trials and matches each year.


Part of our mission includes public education about training and competition dog sports. We subscribe to the theory that a trained dog is a happy dog.


The club encourages and promotes positive reinforcement and reward-based training methods. For general questions, please send us an email.
