The Talbot Kennel Club (TKC) is an all-breed, all-volunteer not for profit organization dedicated to helping dogs and their owners develop positive, rewarding relationships. The TKC is affiliated with the American Kennel Club (AKC).
TKC hosts events throughout the year including agility trials, rally and obedience trials, conformation shows, scent work trials and more.
General meetings are held to execute club business and are open to new members. Our club is also involved in local community events that encourage responsible dog ownership and supports local humane societies.
General Membership meetings are held the first Monday of the months of February, April, June, August, October, and December. The meetings begin at 7 pm and are conducted in the Club’s training facility in Ridgely. For more details visit the General Membership Dates page.
Our philosophy is Training with Kindness and Compassion where reward-based training methods are used.
