Who we are

The Elmira Kennel Club is an affiliated American Kennel Club all- breed dog club. We seek to promote the sport of purebred dogs while providing service for its community and fellowship for all interested in our canine friends.

Practice makes perfect!

Our dedicated club members hold handling classes throughout the year.  This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about showing your dog in conformation events, and is a good place to bring young puppies for show ring prep.  Click here for more information.
