Welcome to


Founded in 1977 to promote the sport of pure-bred dogs, the Hendersonville Kennel Club has
evolved into a community based organization which also promotes responsible dog ownership,
public education, and seeks to protect the rights of dog owners in our community.

Hendersonville Kennel Club can help bring out the best in your canine. We sponsor conformation
show training instruction, dog socialization, Canine Good Citizen classes, obedience and rally classes.

Hendersonville Kennel Club’s mission is to:

  • Further the advancement of all breeds of purebred dogs.
  • Protect and advance the interests of purebred dogs, encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, obedience and rally trials, and any other American Kennel Club events.
  • Conduct sanctioned dog shows, obedience and rally trials, and other American Kennel Club events under the Rules and Regulations of the American Kennel Club.

The Hendersonville Kennel Club offers two all-breed conformation, obedience, and rally shows each year. A perfect opportunity to enjoy man’s best friend either as a spectator or a participant. All events are open to the public with free admission!
