Welcome to the Shenandoah Valley Kennel Club

SVKC meets in Harrisonburg, Virginia, in the center of the lovely Shenandoah Valley.  Our club covers Rockingham and Shenandoah Counties, We're a small, hardworking club and pride ourselves on being open and welcoming to members new to the area or new to dogs.

Like most kennel clubs, Shenandoah Valley's membership is a cross-section of the community. We come from the professional fields, education, the pet care industries, farming, and business. We're retirees, students, housewives, and business people, and our experience in the dog world ranges from breeders and judges with decades to draw on, to people who just obtained their first dogs.

dogOur interests run from agility to obedience and rally to conformation. Some of us breed, some train and compete in various dog sports, and some of us just enjoy our dogs as pets and companions.The common thread weaving through the entire membership is our love of dogs and our belief that pets are as good for people as people are for pets!

We have annual conformation dog shows, obedience and rally competitions, agility trials, and offer show handling and obedience classes, as well as occasional seminars and workshops for the dog fancy.  We have also sponsored Responsible Dog Ownership Day events. SVKC is always open to new ideas and people who want to help implement them!
