FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS
Established in 1951, the Sudbury & District Kennel Club promotes quality breeding of dogs in the Sudbury area according to the principals and standards of the Canadian Kennel Club.
We encourage sportsmanlike competition at conformation shows, and obedience, agility, and field trials. Held throughout the year, our seminars cover many dog related topics such as pointing, hunting, handling, scent detection and herding. Of our many activities, we are extremely proud of our No Bite Program which educates children and the public on how to responsibly approach a strange dog and how to read a dog's body language.
