Welcome to The Elmira Kennel Club, Inc.
The Elmira Kennel Club, Inc. of Elmira, New York is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer dog club founded in 1959.
Our members consist of breeders, exhibitors, AKC judges and pet owners. Elmira Kennel Club members participate on many levels in AKC events, such as conformation dog shows, obedience trials, agility trials, hunting tests and many other performance and companion events.
Due to the risk of canine infectious respiratory disease spreading among dogs locally and nationwide, our handling classes have been cancelled for the remainder of 2023. We are hopeful to resume classes in the new year.
In-person Club Meetings have resumed!
Zoom options are also available for Club Meetings - please email for more information.
