The Northern Neck Kennel Club is an AKC sanctioned kennel club based largely in the counties of Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond, and Westmoreland. The major focus of the Club is to do all in its power to encourage and promote responsible dog ownership through obedience classes, educational seminars, and community-based programs designed to expand public awareness of proper dog care and responsible dog ownership.
The Club holds membership meetings every other month. The Annual Meeting is held in July.
Dog training classes will be held this Spring: Trinity Episcopal Church, 8484 Mary Ball Rd, Lancaster, VA 22503. Detailed information about the classes and registration is posted under Dog Training Classes.
In conjunction with the Greater Fredericksburg Kennel Club and the Charlottesville Albemarle Kennel Club, we sponsor a very popular 5-day AKC all breed Dog Show. This show which is actually 5 separate events is known as the Celebrate Virginia Cluster. It is held in January at the wonderful Expo Center in Central Park, Fredericksburg. Typically there are more than 5,000 entries!
