Welcome to the Ontario County Kennel Club Website
The Ontario County Kennel Club was founded in 1949. Our first conformation show was held in 1951 at the old “Children’s Arena”.
It is the goal of the club to provide the encouragement and development of purebred dogs by holding dog shows and obedience trials for competition and public interest.
To improve the knowledge about purebred dogs through the collection and dissemination among membership and the public of information and knowledge considered beneficial to the purebred dog. Educating club members and the public at large in the benefits of purebred dogs.
Monthly meetings are held on the second Monday of March, April, May, September, November, December and will be for members only.

There will a one week break between sessions to allow for rescheduling of cancelled classes, due to weather or required use by the Congregation.
A great number of our students are drop-ins. To maintain reasonable class sizes, I would like to request that if you are planning to attend, if you could check in to make sure there is space available.
You are permitted to bring more than one dog, with the understanding that the class spot is per handler. You may rotate your dogs through the position you hold in the class line up.
Class sizes will be limited to a maximum of 8 students to maintain the quality of instruction and limit the exposure to Canine Influenza.
If your dog(s) show any signs of sickness, running nose, sneezing, coughing, please keep them at home. If you have dog(s) at home that are not feeling well, please don’t come to class. There are many folks that have puppies and oldsters at home that may not survive these infections, which are contagious.
We are encouraging exhibitors to use DogShow.ca to enter our dog shows!
