National Capital Kennel Club, Inc.

National Capital Kennel Club celebrated our 100th anniversary and legacy of supporting the sport of purebred dogs in 2014. 


Annually National Capital Kennel Club hosts two dog shows as part of the July Independence Cluster and October Fall Fest Cluster.  In 2021 our show dates are:

- Sunday, July 11 

- Sunday, Oct. 17  



National Capital Kennel Club cancedled our 2020 shows due to the challenges and uncertainties presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.  We appreciate the understanding of our exhibitors, judges, spectators, vendors and supporting organizations.  We look forward to our shows on July 11 and October 17, 2021.


In October in addition to Conformation judging for our show, we have a 4-6 month puppy competition, and both Regular and Preferred Obedience classes and two Rally trials.  We hope to see you at a show in 2021! Photos from our 2019 shows are below.



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.
