COVID-19 Announcement

Obedience classes are cancelled indefinitely due to
COVID-19 and will resume once the county health department approves
gatherings and the fairgrounds schedule can accommodate us.

Our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our community, and we want to do our part to mitigate the spread of this disease. We hope to be able to restart classes, but this will depend on recommendations from health experts. We will update our plans as information becomes available.

In response to the rapidly changing situation related to the corona virus,
Del Monte Kennel Club has decided to

Cancel all upcoming meetings, shows and trials.
