Welcome to the Bay De Noc Kennel Club
We were founded in 1992 by a group of people who love dogs and wanted to share that with each other and the community. We welcome all dogs, purebred or mixed breeds. If you have a new addition to your family or want to begin a new activity with your dog, please check out the “CLASSES” drop down list to find out more about the upcoming classes BDNKC has to offer. We have classes designed for Puppies, Obedience, Rally Obedience, Agility, and Nose Work. Let us know what you are interested in.
