WELCOME! Rogue Valley Kennel Club is an AKC Member Club – since 1967

Rogue Valley Kennel Club has regretfully cancelled the Picnic in The Park Dog Show
conformation and obedience/rally events
September 19th – 20th, 2020
at Indian Mary Park in Merlin, Oregon

This action reflects our concern for the health and safety of our membership, our community, and the dog fancy.

The State of Oregon has mandated the following: “Concerts, conventions, festivals, live audience sports won’t be possible until a reliable treatment or prevention is available. It is unknown at this time when this will be. Therefore, all large gatherings should be cancelled or significantly modified through at least September. Further guidance on large gatherings scheduled for later in the fall will be provided this summer.”

We thank the community and our loyal exhibitors for their continued support over many decades and look forward to resuming our show in September 2021.

Good News!
Handling Classes will start next week (Tuesday, July 7th, 7:00pm) thanks to our wonderful volunteer leaders.
Classes will be on the first three Tuesdays of the month during the summer months
WHEN: Tuesdays at 7:00pm 
WHERE: OUTDOORS at George H Eckstein/Portola Park, 1720 SE Portola Drive, Grants Pass
$3.00 donations requested to help pay for hand sanitizer and for the 4-H dog group, the Pooch Paw Raiders
COVID-19 RULES – strictly enforced
RVKC cares about the health and safety of our members and everyone attending our event and will maintain a COVID-safe environment as much as possible.
Social Distance: Everyone will stay at least 6 feet apart at all times.
Masks: Are required to be worn when a 6 foot distance cannot be maintained. This will occur when the masked judge goes over the dog. If you are not wearing a mask the judge will not approach you or the dog.
Hand Sanitizer: Will be available for your use as desired and the judge will use it between examinations.
Table Dogs: You might consider bringing a towel to cover the table for your dog if you don’t want your dog touching where other dogs have been examined.


NOTE: Even if you do not think these safety measures are necessary – we do. 
If you do not wish to follow these rules, please do not attend the class. If you need help, we will gladly assist you.
If at any time the leader becomes uncomfortable with the level of compliance he or she may dismiss the class immediately.

If following the rules becomes a problem, the classes will be discontinued entirely.
