Durham Kennel Club offers to its members and to the general public classes in obedience, agility and conformation show handling.
The Durham Kennel Club was established in 1928 and incorporated in 1931. We are devoted to the betterment of all dogs. Our members are dog owners from all walks of life, many of whom are full time dog breeders, weekend dog exhibitors or just concerned and interested pet owners. DKC is a member club of the American Kennel Club.
Our club gets involved with all legislation involving dogs. Some of our members and their dogs visit rest homes and similar facilities.
We offer a Breeder Referral Service to the community providing information on buying a puppy, finding breeders, and other information on dogs.
Our monthly meetings are normally held on the third Monday of each month except in February which is our Annual Awards Dinner. We do not meet in June or July. We have a Christmas Party in December. Our meetings begin with a covered dish dinner at 7 pm followed by a dog-related program and then our business meeting.
