The SCKC is a member club of the American Kennel Club. SCKC dates its beginning to a club formed in the 1930s by a group of people with an interest in purebred dogs. The first AKC sanctioned shows and obedience trials were held on May 25, 1955. The SCKC became an AKC member club on December 13, 1988. SCKC shows were held at the Pueblo Greyhound Park (under the grandstands) originally as well as at the City Park prior to the present location. Today shows are held at the Colorado State Fairgrounds.
Obedience and handling classes have always been an important part of the kennel club. Classes are held at the SCKC Training Center at 715 N. Grand in Pueblo. Classes are held year around now since we have the new training facility. Prior to the present, classes were held at the Colorado State Fair Grounds.
Community involvement includes the Pueblo Humane Society, Pueblo Animal Services, Pueblo County 4-H clubs, and pet therapy in area hospitals and nursing homes.
Our membership is composed of a diverse group with an interest in many breeds of dogs from Airedales to Yorkshire Terriers. We have members from as far south as Walsenburg, as far east as La Junta, and as far west as Canon City. We are truly a southern Colorado kennel club.
Membership in SCKC is a privilege. With privilege comes obligation. In this website you will find copies of the SCKC By-laws and Standing Rules. Please read the by-laws and standing rules carefully. Items two (2) and three (3) in the standing rules state your obligation as a member of the Southern Colorado Kennel Club. No organization can sustain itself without the participation of active members. We hope you will inquire about membership into the SCKC.
