Our club, which was formed in 1974, has a membership of about 50. Our members live in all regions of Grey and Bruce counties, in the Province of Ontario, Canada. They include top breeders in our area in a wide range of different breeds. Many of our members have their own web sites which you are invited to explore through our links. Our membership is not limited to breeders but also includes many members whose dog is a pet and a loving member of their family.
Breeder or not, we all subscribe to the same set of values. We promote the purebred dog ... we encourage responsible dog ownership ... we share information on dog related issues between ourselves and the general public.
The GBKOC is involved in a wide variety of activities including dog handling seminars, health clinics and our big event, the Six Championship Conformation Dog Shows to be held following the August holiday weekend - August 2, 3 & 4, 2015, plus 4 Rally/O and Obedience trials August 2 & 3, at our usual location in picturesque Harrison Park.
Harrison Park is an urban dream, with more than 40 hectares of streams, trails, gardens, playgrounds, forest and green space, right in the heart of the city. Often called our “jewel in the crown,” the park features dining and recreation facilities, a full-service campground, boat rentals, a bird sanctuary, mini-putt, basketball courts, pools, and an open-air rink. Its network of trails leads through forest, fields and streams to Inglis Falls, and connects directly with the Bruce Trail on the Niagara Escarpment. Our resident swans and their offspring will delight all ages, along with the many other species of birds frolicking and sunning themselves in our ponds and river.
