​     WELCOME  And thanks for stopping by!

Established in 1975 as a non-profit AKC All Breed Kennel Club, Gloucester Kennel Club continues to put Dogs first. From our annual Conformation show in June, to our Agility Trials in the Spring and Fall- you can find GKC Members helping at every turn. Weekly trainings at our 40 acre site in Gloucester help prepare our community of canines for great competition or simple obedience. We have a strong tradition at Gloucester Kennel Club of high standards of success- many of our members compete at different levels throughout the country- even earning top AKC honors at events like The Westminster Dog Show.

We give back, too. Every year we work for donations through our various events and trainings to raise funds for our local community organizations. Some examples of these include the Gloucester Mathews Humane Society, the local Fire Department, and AKC sponsored organizations that promote responsible dog ownership.


We consider ourselves a great resource for dog owners. Please don't hesitate to contact us concerning your dog. We're here to help!
