The Southern Colorado Kennel Club (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) and in City Park prior to the present location. Today shows are held at the Colorado State Fairgrounds.
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.
Community involvement includes the Pueblo Humane Society, Pueblo Animal Services, Pueblo County 4-H clubs, and pet therapy in area hospitals and nursing homes.
