Founded in 1934 by a group of dog fanciers in central Pennsylvania, the Harrisburg Kennel Club, Inc. has actively supported dog fanciers and the selective, responsible breeding of purebred dogs for more than 85 years.

Our objectives are:
  • To further the advancement of purebred dogs,
  • To protect the interests, health, and well-being of all dogs,
  • To promote responsible dog ownership, and
  • To protect the rights of all dog owners.

In addition to hosting two all-breed AKC conformation dog shows annually, performance events, and other outreach events, the Harrisburg Kennel Club and its members work to:
  • Promote the human/canine bond through performance events and training.
  • Educate the public about purebred dogs; and
  • Teach others about responsible pet ownership.

Monthly Meetings

The Harrisburg Kennel Club meets on the second Wednesday of most months at the Holiday Inn Express, 4021 Union Deposit Road (1st floor meeting room), Harrisburg, PA 17109.
