About the Cary Kennel Club

The Cary Kennel Club is an AKC licensed club centered in Cary, North Carolina. The club held its first meeting in May, 2004.

There are over 75 members, many of whom have long term experience in the sport of pure-bred dogs and AKC events. The club meets every other month in the area of Cary, Apex, Holly Springs and Fuquay-Varina.



Club meetings are generally held on the first Wednesday evening every other month with exceptions for the meeting held in conjuction with the match and the holiday party in December.

Thank you to everyone for a wonderful meeting on February 7th - the social hour was a great success and many thanks to our speaker, Dr. Karen Von Dollen from the NCSU Vet School.

The next club meeting will be at Town And Country Animal Care (2010 N. Salem Street, Apex, NC 27523) on April 4th, 2018. There will be a social hour before the meeting with pizza, wine, and soft drinks, starting at 7:00 PM.

Our program for the April 4th meeting is on the AKC DETECTION DOG PROGRAM

As homegrown terrorism and mass shootings become regular news in America, the demand for explosives detection dogs grows. In addition to the US government, schools, universities, malls, theaters and concert venues are seeking the services of bomb dogs with one major problem: there are not enough dogs to meet the demand. The AKC formed a task force two years ago to research this issue and how the AKC and its breeders might help. A national conference on the subject is planned for August in Durham. AKC staffers Mark Dunn and Penny Leigh will speak about the issue and the work of the task force.

Remember to bring a chair!

Our next event is part of the Labor Day Shows at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds.
