About the Minneapolis Kennel Club

 Founded in 1933, the Minneapolis Kennel Club is one of the oldest kennel clubs in Minnesota. Its mission is to further the advancement of all breeds of purebred dogs, to advance the interests of dog shows and obedience trials, and to encourage sportsmanship at such events.

The Minneapolis Kennel Club conducts chipping clinics, educational meetings and seminars , sanctioned matches,an annual all-breed dog show and an obedience trial. The club is an active donor to the purebred dog community.



Responsible Dog Ownership Day will be held this year at the Washington County Fairgrounds on September 5. RDOD is an amazing event for the whole family, a great way to introduce the variety of activities we enjoy with our dogs.

The next MKC meeting will be held on September 15, 7:30 pm at the Richfield Community Center,7000 Nicollet Avenue South, Richfield.

Mark your calendars: MKC's Holiday Party is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1, at Centennial Lakes Centennial Lakes Park Hughes Pavilion, catered by Deco Catering. Please note that this is both a change of location and a change of date. As you might know, the Fort Snelling Officers' Club where MKC normally holds the Holiday Party has been closed due to security concerns and was not available this year. The Hughes Pavilion is a lovely spot overlooking the Centennial Lakes Park. There is convenient parking and the food will be spectacular. Many thanks to Dick Rueter for great persistence in finding both a wonderful location and caterer for this event.
