Member of the American Kennel Club

The Del Monte Kennel Club was founded to promote the sport of purebred dogs and encourage responsible dog ownership. In addition to our obedience and handling classes, the Club sponsors two All-Breed Conformation Dog Shows, three Obedience Trials, three Rally Trials and three Agility Trials each year. Purebred dogs from California and the U.S. participate in these shows.

Del Monte Kennel Club's first AKC Sanctioned Show was held in 1924.
