About Us

Thank you for your interest the Oshkosh Kennel Club.

Here is a little about the Oshkosh Kennel Club

OKC holds monthly meetings of the general membership on the second Wednesday of each month at which there is a business meeting and a program of interest to the membership. In the past these programs have been things such as a Representative from AKC, local veterinarians speaking on topics of importance to breeders, and speakers on various aspects of raising, training and showing dogs. The month of August we have our annual picnic in place of the monthly meeting. The month of December we have our annual awards banquet in place of the monthly meeting. OKC also sponsors events such as All-Breed Shows, Obedience, Rally and Agility Trials, CGC Tests and a Spring Fun Match. Training Classes for Conformation, Obedience, Rally and Agility are offered throughout the year.
