Welcome to Talbot Kennel Club

The Talbot Kennel Club (TKC) is an all-breed, all-volunteer nonprofit 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 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.

Our philosophy is Training with Kindness and Compassion

where reward-based training methods are used.

Come and train in our climate-controlled, fully-matted facility. TKC offers a variety of classes.  Check the class schedule for current offerings.
