About the Des Moines Kennel Club

The Des Moines Kennel Club was organized in 1925 for the purpose of promoting purebred dogs. The DMKC is an AKC Member Club. Presently, there are approximately 80 members representing 60 breeds of purebred dogs.

An annual AKC licensed dog show is held each September with an entry of around 2,200 dogs. Seminars and public education projects are provided several times a year.

Membership to DMKC is open to all persons 18 years of age and older who are in good standing with the American Kennel Club and who support the goals and purposes of the club. Prospective members are encouraged to attend several meetings prior to applying for membership. All interested persons are welcome to attend the meetings.

Regular meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. The location of meetings is the Northwest Community Center, 5110 Franklin Ave., Des Moines. Map it.
