The Ottawa Kennel Club (OKC), founded in 1887, is Canada's oldest kennel club. Today, our members still share the original passion for dogs that started the club over a century ago.
The OKC promotes the appreciation of purebred dogs and provides opportunities for the public to see them in all the areas of their expertise: in conformation, agility, obedience, hunting, therapy, rescue - and most importantly as man's best friend.
We do this most directly through our numerous club events including our spring conformation show, our December obedience trials and our annual CKC Sanctioned Event. All our events are open to the public.
We also promote the conscientious breeding and placing of purebred dogs. All our members subscribe to our written Code of Ethics.
The OKC supports SafePet Ottawa which fosters companion animals for women and their children who exit from domestic violence into the safety of local Violence Against Women shelters.
