The Macomb Kennel Club is dedicated to the sport of purebred dogs . Founded in 2007, its mission is to promote and protect dogs of all breeds, encourage good sportsmanship, conduct events under the authority of the American Kennel Club (AKC), and to educate the general public in responsible dog ownership.


The interests and expertise of our membership are diverse.  Some of our members are obedience and behavioral instructors, conformation show instructors, dog show handlers, field trial judges, conformation, earthdog, lure-coursing, tracking, field, and herding competitors.


We produce several competitive events each August at Springfield Oaks 4H County Park Fairgrounds in Davisburg, MI that are sanctioned by the American Kennel Club.  We also occasionally offer Health Clinics, AKC Good Citizen Tests, and all-breed competiton practice events for puppies, young adult dogs, and youngsters, and we host Barn Hunt and Lure Coursing events.


Macomb Kennel Club does more than sponsor dog shows and competitive events.  We recognize our responsibility to our members and guests by offering mini education programs at a few meetings each year which are open to the public.  These presentations cover a wide range of themes, including local, state, and national breed legislation issues, breeding concerns, various health and veterinary topics, training, estate planning with dogs in mind, and general responsibilities of good dog ownership.  (See the Events tab for  future club happenings.)


We also offer referrals to responsible breeders and many community resources. (Check out the ‘Finding Your Perfect Dog’ – with our club’s Breeder Directory tab and the ‘Community Resources for Dog Owners’ tab on this site.


As a responsible member of the Macomb County community, members participate in many area events.  Several participate with their dogs in Canine Therapy Dog programs by visiting nursing homes, senior centers, local hospitals, schools, group homes, and libraries.  Other assist by being actively involved in a variety of breed rescue, shelter and adoption programs.


If you are a like-minded individual or family, live in the area, and would like to know more about the Macomb Kennel Club, you are invited to attend any of our general meetings.

JUNIOR SHOWMANSHIP - A word about the sport of purebred dogs yet to come –


Young adults, ‘Juniors’, are important to the future of the sport of dogs and responsible dog ownership, and the more they learn the more valuable they become.  The attitudes, values, and responsibility learned through Junior Showmanship will serve youngsters well in other areas of their lives.


Macomb Kennel Club promotes and encourages the showing of dogs of all breeds in AKC junior performance and companion events.  Our senior members work to advance the knowledge and participation of Juniors in the show ring, dog sports arena, and field events, by providing thoughtful mentoring and advice and by encouraging sportsmanlike conduct.
