The Austin Kennel Club, established in 1944, is an All Breed Dog Club licensed by the American Kennel Club. Our members own and show many of the AKC recognized breeds -- ranging from the popular Maltese, which is in the Toy Group, to the Miniature Schnauzer which is a member of the Terrier Group, and everything inbetween! Our members who breed dogs do so in order to improve their breed's conformation, temperament, and genetic health as well as being involved in purebred rescue.
As an All Breed club, one of our main objectives is to further the advancement of all breeds of purebred dogs and the sport of purebred dogs. We also work to protect the interests of purebred dog fanciers in the Austin area and encourage good sportsmanship at all dog events. In order to accomplish these goals, we are involved in many events throughout the year. At some of our monthly meetings, we host an educational program related to dogs. In the past, our programs have ranged from screenings dvds/videos relating to dogs, viewing AKC breed videos, talking to Dog Legislators, and seminars by veterinarians & other dog professionals.
