About Who we are is who we always were…

Established in 1975

As an AKC affiliated club, our primary focus is on purebreds. However, we don’t limit ourselves to purebreds only. We also provide training and socialization assistance for all dogs, purebred and mixed, emphasizing the importance of responsible care, training, and companionship. The club is dedicated to three major goals... Further the advancement of all dogs. Do all in our power to protect and advance the interests of dogs and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and at other performance events. Conduct sanctioned matches, dog shows, and performance events under the rules and regulations of the American Kennel Club.

It’s significantly less formal, but just as intense as conformation. These events may come in one or more of the following forms: Competitive Obedience Rally Obedience Agility Lure Coursing Fast CAT
