The Atlanta Kennel Club meets on the third Wednesday of each month (with the exceptions of April which is at the Cluster show in Perry, GA and December which is set early in the month and announced) in metro Atlanta, Georgia. Monthly meetings usually include dinner, a speaker and a short business meeting. All meetings of the Club are open to members, guests, and the general public.
It is the mission of the Atlanta Kennel Club to promote, advance and protect the interests of purebred dogs and to encourage good sportsmanship at all purebred events as recognized by the American Kennel Club, and to educate the fancy, government and the public regarding responsible dog ownership. The Atlanta Kennel Club is a member of the American Kennel Club.
The Atlanta Kennel Club invites you to join with us in our love of Dogs and the Sport of Dogs. Visit our meetings, which are open to the public, and above all, come to our Dog Shows! There you will find the finest dogs of every breed – and their enthusiastic owners. We love our dogs, and love having fun with our dogs!
Each month we offer an informational program centered on a topic of general interest to people who own, breed, train and love dogs. Some topics offered at our meetings over the past year have centered around:
- specific health issues
- coat and skin care
- advantages and disadvantages of different diets
- programs centered on the wide variety of services that canines perform
- understanding dog shows
- understanding the human/animal bond
- dog collectibles
