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.

Based on Criteria approved by the GCOC Board the Mask Mandate had to be implemented again, for the time being. At this time over 20% of people tested in Richland and Lexington County are positive for COVID and both Counties are listed as having a High Transmission Rate.

If the numbers drop below the criteria level we will be able to remove the mandate.

List is in order of date Except Meetings which are listed at bottom of this page

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.
