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.


Upcoming Events:

The MKC Annual All-breed Show will be held November 22 and 23 at Canterbury Park. We are very excited at the prospect of a new, larger (24,000 square feet of open space) facility. Parking is still free. Please feel free to contact anyone on the MKC Board if you are able to help; there’s always need for an extra set of hands/legs during the very busy show weekend!

The show premium list is online; the judging schedule will be posted as available.

Mark your calendars: MKC's Annual Meeting and Holiday Party will be on Tuesday, December 9, at the Fort Snelling Officer's Club. Details will be posted as soon as they are available.
