National Capital Kennel Club celebrated our 100th anniversary and legacy of supporting the sport of purebred dogs in 2014, and each year hosts two dog shows.
Annually National Capital Kennel Club hosts shows as part of the July Independence Cluster and October Fall Fest Cluster. In 2021 our show dates were:
- Sunday, July 11 - Catalog Results
- Sunday, October 17- Catalog Results
The 2021 National Capital Kennel Club shows were a success and we look forward to our 2022 shows. During our 2021 July show the club awarded long time member and former board member John Nielsen with the AKC Sportsmanship Award.
In October in addition to Conformation judging for our show, we held a 4-6 month puppy competition, and both Regular and Preferred Obedience classes and two Rally trials. We hope to see you at a National Capital Kennel Club show in 2022! Photos from our shows will be posted below.
In 2022 our show dates are: Sunday, July 10 and Sunday, October 16. Everyone always enjoys our club hospitality and plenty of food during our luncheons.
Over the years National Capital Kennel Club has made donations to many important organizations serving dogs. In 2014 National Capital Kennel Club President Helen Prince paritipated in the ceremony for the AKC Disaster Relief Trailer presentation in Calvert County Maryland. National Capital Kennel Club was one of the clubs making donations to support the purchase of the trailer.
