About BRKC

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

Our new home for annual shows will be held in Gonzales, Louisiana. The Jambalaya 4-day cluster of all-breed shows will be held in conjunction with Northlake Kennel Club. The show site is exceptional in terms of space, green areas, hotels, and restaurants and was highly applauded by exhibitors. Learn more here.

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 lure coursing, obedience, agility, barn hunt, rally, dock diving, nose work, tick dog, 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 we typically gather for dinner afterwards.
Occasionally we host speakers presenting on 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 supports laws that protect the rights of dog owners.

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