Rogue Valley Kennel Club Celebrates
AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day

Rogue Valley Kennel Club invites dog lovers to celebrate responsible dog ownership with fun and engaging activities every dog owner can enjoy.

Annually, Rogue Valley Kennel Club joins more than 5,000 AKC-affiliated dog clubs in hosting an annual Responsible Dog Ownership Day. It’s a great way for current and would-be dog owners to share knowledge, have fun, and celebrate the unconditional love we receive from our canine companions. This local event includes Meet the Breeds booths, breed parades, various demonstrations, a chance to try out some Rally and Agility exercises, dog related vendors, dog related non-profit organizations, and other interesting activities.
