The Macon Kennel Club is a member club of the American Kennel Club (AKC). We were founded and incorporated under state law as a non-profit organization in 1939 and have been in continuous operation for over 75 years. Our objectives are to further the advancement of all breeds of pure-bred dogs; to protect and advance the interest of all breeds of pure-bred dogs and to encourage sportsmanlike competition while exhibiting in the AKC, and to conduct sanctioned matches, dog shows, obedience trials and tracking tests under the rules of the American Kennel Club. We also seek to educate the general public regarding responsible ownership and care of all dogs whether pure-bred or not.
The Macon Kennel Club held its first organized dog show in 1939 and has had at least one such dog show annually since that time. We currently hold two dog shows each year during the month of May in conjunction with the Crossroads of Georgia Cluster at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter.
We offer classes in Obedience, Rally, Conformation and Agility, as well as the Canine Good Citizen ( CGC) test . The Club is affiliated with the Therapy Dog program for visiting hospitals and nursing homes as well as the Meals On Wheels For Pets program which provides dog and cat food to elderly homebound citizens. The club has actively addressed the governing councils of Macon/Bibb County and the cities of Warner Robins and Perry in Houston County regarding restrictive animal ownership laws and animal welfare in general.
