The Central New York Kennel Club, Inc. (CNYKC) is an all-breed, all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of purebred dogs and helping dogs and their owners develop positive, rewarding relationships. Established in 1920, CNYKC, an American Kennel Club (AKC) member club, advocates for the purebred dog as a family companion, works to protect the rights of all dog owners and promotes responsible dog ownership for all dogs.

CNYKC hosts several annual events to promote the sport of purebred dogs: all-breed dog conformation shows and obedience trials; an AKC sanctioned match; and a tracking test. General monthly meetings are held to execute club business and are open to new members. Our club is also involved in local community events that encourage responsible dog ownership and supports local humane societies and purebred dog rescue.

Central New York Kennel Club members love purebred dogs and their sport. They participate in conformation, obedience, agility, rally, tracking, earthdog and herding events. Many members' dogs are Canine Good Citizens and some are also certified Therapy Dogs. Members reside primarily in Oneida, Herkimer, and Madison Counties in Central New York. Membership is open to all persons 18 years of age and older who are in good standing with the AKC and who subscribe to the purpose of the club and sign our code of ethics. In addition, there is a junior, non-voting membership for youth from 10-18 years of age.

If you are passionate about purebred dog/s and would like to learn more about our club, please contact us.
