About EDOC

Emerald Dog Obedience Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization. Our mission is strengthening the bond between dog owners and their dogs through training. Although we are licensed by the American Kennel Club for our competition events, our training classes are open to all dogs not just AKC registered dogs.

We hold monthly meetings, often with a program of interest to dog owners. Guests are always welcome at our meetings. We also extend the invitation to others in our community if they wish to present a program to our membership to please contact us.

Many of our members with their dogs participate in community service.
