Our training levels in obedience begin with Pre-Novice (just starting out), and progress through the regular classes (Novice, Open and Utility) all the way to Obedience Trial Champion. Likewise, we go from Rally Novice (beginners) to Rally Advanced, Excellent and Master.
We hold and support obedience trials, rally trials, exhibitions and matches under the rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club. Accredited by the American Kennel Club in 1976, DOCG has active members primarily in the Greenville - Spartanburg - Asheville - Anderson areas, though some are from as far as Columbia, Aiken, and Atlanta. We host AKC obedience and rally trials in March and October each year. Our trials are well-attended by exhibitors from throughout the entire Southeast US, and are respected as among the very best shows in the country.
Our members are helpful, knowledgeable, and are most willing to share their training ideas. We offer informal training days in different locations for our members.
