The Windham County Kennel Club, Inc.(WCKC), is a member of The American Kennel Club (AKC).
Goals of WCKC are to promote the sport of the purebred dog and to provide information to the entire canince community. WCKC sponsors two annual AKC shows and obedience trials. One is held early in May, outdoors at the Woodstock Fairgrounds, Woodstock CT. The other is held indoors the third weekend of November in conjunction with "the Thanksgiving Cluster" held at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA.
Throughout the year WCKC holds a minimum of six meetings frequently with educational programs geared at promoting responsible dog ownership, specific breeds, or topics of interest currently before the canine owners and breeders. A past topic was current legislation issues breeders and dog owners face in the State.
The public is welcome to attend our membership meetings, and prospective members are urged to attend at least two meetings and to become involved with our shows or many other events where WCKC members participate.
The next membership meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at 7:30 PM at the Ashford Fire Dept Co. 2, Old Town Road, Ashford, CT.
