The Nanaimo Kennel Club is dedicated to the welfare of ALL dogs, purebreds as well as mixed breeds.
The NKC encourages the betterment of all dogs in the community through various activities.
We endeavour to enhance the role of dogs in society as an essential member of its communities
where it functions as a companion and, above all, “man’s best friend”.
In 1924 a small group of dog fanciers formed this non-profit organization to establish dog obediance training classes. We are one of the oldest all breed dog clubs on Vancouver Island
The NKC offers classes in: Puppy Socialisation and Pet Manners as well as Obedience, Show Handling, Tricks, Rally Free, Rally Obedience and Scent Detection.
We will undertake the task of educating and encouraging Members, newcomers and the general public to the world of dogs, no matter what their interest, be it pet owner, competitor or breeder.
NKC JUNIOR CLUB
We are focused towards teaching our children the joy of dog companionship, the fun of training and competing with their dog while developing a strong appreciation and bond with dogs.
DOGS ARE ATHLETES
Dogs love to be active, exercising both their minds and bodies. Whatever the training experience – it should always be positive and fun for dog and owner.
DOGS ARE FAMILY
We recognize that dogs are social animals. As such, members agree that our dogs are part of the family and should be included in our day-to-day activities wherever possible.
