About BRKC

BRKC’s activities cover quite a few areas offering fanciers a multitude of ways to become involved.

Every January, we hold a 2-day all-breed conformation show “The Mardi Gras Cluster” in conjunction with Alexandria Kennel Club. Shows in 2016/17 exceeded expectations bringing in new members, record entries, revenue, and applause from exhibitors.

Shortly after reorganization, AKC recognized BRKC for its activities, outreach, and dedication to the sport of dog showing by featuring our club in the AKCommunicates national newsletter. A proud moment! To read the full story, click here.
BRKC members support and participate in several community organizations such as the Baton Rouge Police K-9 Corps, the annual CAAWS Mardi Gras Parade, the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s Open House, and more. Outreach and education are a high priority.

Besides conformation showing, several members are active in other disciplines such as lure coursing, obedience, agility, barn hunt, rally, dock diving, nose work, and therapy. Not sure you’re ready for ring time? Members volunteer their time to mentor new exhibitors at handling classes. All told, our members have a wealth of knowledge and welcome assisting and mentoring newcomers.

The club holds monthly meetings and typically we enjoy dinner afterwards.
Occasionally we host speakers who discuss subjects such as veterinary science, health, reproduction, law enforcement, and other canine-centric topics.

BRKC advocates for the humane treatment and protection of all dogs, actively seeks to educate the public about responsible ownership, and support laws that protect the rights of dog owners.

Needless to say, we are having a great time and excited about the future! Join us!
