Welcome to our new site…it’s still under construction!

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.



TVKC holds 5 regularly-scheduled membership meetings per year. They are held on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm. We are currently seeking a permanent meeting location. Each month’s meeting has a focus:

  • March (education)
  • April (show and trial planning)
  • May (show and trial planning)
  • September (annual meeting—new board members are elected and membership renewals are due)
