The Sudbury and District Kennel Club Inc. has been hosting Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) approved licensed events since 1951. In addition to community participation these events have brought in competitors from all corners of North America who continue to return due to our Northern Hospitality and camaraderie that is present at our events. We encourage spectators from our community to come out and see what our proud members have accomplished. There is also an opportunity to get the right answers to any of your dog related questions from the pros.
Throughout the year the Obedience Section endeavours to host Obedience Trials, Rally Obedience Trials, Agility Trials, and Tracking Tests. It is also planning to offer Scent Detection Trials in the future. The events accommodate pure bred dogs as well as mixed breeds provided they have a Canine Companion Number.
Our Show Section hosts one major Conformation Show annually, typically in the fall.
The Spaniel Section usually conducts Spaniel Field Trials in the spring and fall. Hunt Tests are only in the planning stage. Please note that if you plan to attend a Spaniel Field Trial, a garment of Hunter Orange is required to be worn (hat and/or vest) while in the field as these events are conducted as close to hunting conditions as possible involving trained and supervised gunners for the shooting of live birds.
Through the Hunting Section you are welcome to participate in shed hunts. This section is not breed specific and hopes to also offer fun hunt tests in the future.
The Club did host very successful Retriever Trials in the past but for the time being this section is inactive.
