We are an AKC club, which works toward the betterment of purebred and companion dogs through a variety of competitive events, training, and promotion of the health and safety of dogs throughout the area.


Our club members participate in many AKC events and Canine Performance Events (CPE) including agility, barn hunts, conformation, obedience, rallyweight pulling, and other competitive events.  We partner every June with the Cambridge Minnesota Kennel Club for the Summer Solstice Cluster of Dog Shows.
