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 Five Championship Conformation Dog Shows plus Rally/O and Obedience, - to be held following the August holiday weekend - August 6, 7 & 8 2013 at our usual location in picturesque Harrison Park.
We welcome your inquiries on membership, programs and our Dog Show. We also welcome your comments.

Trainer - Kelly Doner
Rally Obedience Class
Obedience and Rally classes finished on Sept 24th with graduation !
We were very lucky to have Kelly as a trainer. I think everyone enjoyed the classes and had nothing but good to say. Most would have come back for more, I'm hoping we can convince Kelly to come back next spring.
