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.

DMKC members

Board members, Hap Sutliff, our President, Ellen Mitchell, our Corresponding Secretary and Publicity Chair and Julie Craig, one of our Directors, huddle around Cody for an afternoon chat. Ellen is proudly displaying a raffle box she made which has a picture, on one side, of Cody doing weave poles. Cody has been retired from agility for almost 3 years, but he was so excited to see his past trainers, Suzi Bluford and Laura Pryse, at this event. He still trains with Suzi for nose work, and he definitely remembered Laura when she came up and played with him.
