Welcome to Columbia, South Carolina's 

Home for Canine Activities!


Scheduled reopening of GCOC facility and classes.

The facility is officially opening for use by members on June 1, 2020.

The front large room is still being worked on while we relay the mats that got wet in the last flood event.   

Practice/train in the small ring and back, if weather permits.

The mats have been cleaned and the facility has been cleaned on a regular schedule since the "stay at home" began.  Big thanks to Mel as she has taken extra steps to clean even more thoroughly during the down time.  

Check back for upcoming class schedules

Smaller classes and new rules will be put in place to assure the safety of participants and their dogs.  


*******In order to protect Exhibitors, Trial Workers, Judges and Canines from possible

exposure to the COVID-19 Virus

GCOC has decided to cancel both the 

April 23 - 26 Agility Trial

and  the

May 2-3, 2020

Obedience and Rally Trial

If have already paid for your registration you will be refunded. Please give us time to sort

out the logistics of processing refunds for both trials.

Thank you for your understanding.


No Membership meetings till further notice.  Stay tuned, and Stay Safe!


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.
