Responsible Dog Ownership, Welfare, & Training


The Lawrence Jayhawk Kennel Club provides opportunities for social interaction, competition, and training with other dog owners.  We promote responsible dog ownership through the education of ourselves and the public in all aspects of owning, training, breeding, and exhibiting dogs.

Additionally, we sponsor several dog-related competitions and activities throughout the year including obedience training classes & an all-breed dog show and obedience trial. We welcome visitors to our meetings and encourage applications for membership.
