The Carolina Kennel Club was founded in 1938 and are proud to be the oldest kennel club in North Carolina. We became an American Kennel Club (AKC) Member club in 1938

Located in the piedmont region of the state, our membership resides primarily in Guilford County and surrounding areas. For more than 80 years we have hosted conformation events for purebred dogs.  We encourage our members to participate in a broad range of activities with their dogs including agility and obedience.

We are dedicated to our community and fostering responsible dog ownership.  Through sponsorship of rabies clinics, educational materials, and our events we strive to assure the preservation of purpose bred dogs who have contributed greatly to the evolution of our country.


Each year we provide financial support to worthy organizations in the community who further our aims of community service and responsible dog ownership.  We currently support Paws 4 Hope, Guilford County Pet Responsibility, and NC Pet Partners.
