The Anoka County Minnesota Kennel Club (ACMKC) is a club dedicated to furthering the advancement of American Kennel Club (AKC) registered purebred dogs. We also welcome companion dogs to join us in our events. We’re just a short trip to Anoka, north of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN).Find us directly at acmkc.com or acmkc.org
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, rally, weight pulling, and other competitive events. We partner every June with the Cambridge Minnesota Kennel Club for the Summer Solstice Cluster of Dog Shows.
