The Northern Neck Kennel Club

The Northern Neck Kennel Club of Virginia (NNKC) is an AKC-sanctioned non-profit kennel club based in the counties of Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond and Westmoreland. The major focus of NNKC is to encourage and promote responsible ownership for all dogs through obedience classes, educational seminars and community-based programs designed to expand public awareness of proper dog care and best practices.

The Annual Meeting is held in July. NNKC is actively seeking new members and volunteers to help with our programs.

Information about 2021 classes and registration is posted below and under Dog Training Classes.

In conjunction with the Greater Fredericksburg Kennel Club and the Charlottesville Albemarle Kennel Club, NNKC sponsors a very popular 5-day AKC all-breed Dog Show. This show, known as the Celebrate Virginia Cluster, will be held in August 2021 at the wonderful venue The Meadow in Doswell, Virginia. With more than 5,000 entries, this is a marvelous opportunity to enjoy your favorite breed in action.
