Members and their dogs interact with some 8,000 visitors at the annual LSU School of Veterinary Medicine Open House. 

Purebred dogs make terrific ambassadors. The annual Krewe of Mutts Mardi Gras event provides club members the opportunity to show off well-bred/well-mannered dogs to the public and answer questions about ownership, breeds, and care. This parade is the 2nd largest in the nation (after Barkus in New Orleans) with some 14,000 people attending. All proceeds benefit Capitol Area Animal Welfare.

BRKC works hard to have a presence at many dog-oriented events in the Greater Baton Rouge area like BREC’s October Bark.

Members participate in a wide range of activities such as barn hunt, dock diving, lure coursing, agility, obedience, rally, therapy, and field trials. Some have even been extras in theatre and on television!
