CKC Performance Events: We’re All In

The Canadian Kennel Club is proud to welcome mixed-breed and unrecognized-breed dogs into our Agility, Obedience and Rally-Obedience Trials. Beginning July 1, 2014, the new CKC Canine Companion program will invite mixed-breed and unrecognized-breed dogs to compete alongside purebred dogs and will share the same level of competition and receive the same titles.  This change will broaden the sports’ scope and inclusiveness and extend an invitation to anyone considering taking up a performance sport.

We welcome the opportunity to have you and your dog come out and compete with the very best!
