TVKC Welcomes You!

Our goal is to further the advancement of all breeds of purebred dogs, to conduct dog shows, agility trials, obedience trials, tracking tests, and sanctioned matches under the rules of the American Kennel Club. We also strive to protect and advance the interests of all breeds of purebred dogs and to demonstrate sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, agility, obedience, and tracking trials. Through these efforts we hope to provide educational opportunities to the public on all aspects of dog ownership.
