Join GCOC!


Greater Columbia Obedience Club, Inc. (GCOC) membership is open to dog enthusiasts interested in learning more about training dogs, competing, and socializing with other dog lovers in the community. We promote positive training methods for all purebreds and mixed breed dogs.

The club holds various trialsclasses and workshops throughout the year to help raise money, educate the community and provide a venue to show off the talents of dogs in the region. GCOC is a volunteer-run organization and all members are expected to serve the club by helping with the many activities that are sponsored and with all aspects of running the organization.
