Member Benefits

Do any of these apply to you?

Are you a dog person?

Experienced, or just beginning? Then JOIN THE CLUB! Dog clubs abound with dog lovers who share common interests of raising, training, breeding, and competing. For more information on joining ICCKC, see "Join" section on the

Membership page.

Do you want to Gain Knowledge

Dog club members are knowledgeable about canine nutrition, health, training, and

development. A dog club is the place to meet experts on your breed of dog, learn the fine art of showing your dog, participating in agility, obedience, rally, and many other dog events.

Do you want to Contribute to Your Community

Dog clubs strive to promote and protect dogs in their communities. Club

members teach responsible dog ownership by sponsoring training classes, offering responsible breeder locator services, and by participating in rescue networks. They monitor and provide input for legislation governing

responsible dog ownership.

Do you want to be The Real Thing

If you watchdog shows on TV, you may get the impression that only rich people in fancy clothes with fancy dogs can be part of the dog show world. Nothing could be further from the truth! You can choose to participate at any level of involvement or expense that suits you. Come to our meetings and events - meet our members to see the real world of dogs and dog shows.
