Our honored speaker for Atlanta KC meeting Wed MARCH 15,  is Patti Strand, NAIA President

She will be updating us on the current National animal issues and legislation pending that is of concern to all responsible dog owners. Come learn what we can do as Georgia Dog Owners to protect our rights to show and breed dogs, in the face of the current anti dog climate in the media.

She often appears on radio and television and her articles on canine issues, animal welfare, public policy and animal rights have appeared in major US news publications and in trade, professional and scientific journals. Patti and her husband Rod co-authored The Hijacking of the Humane Movement: Animal Extremism in 1993, the first US book exposing the extremism of the animal rights movement. Patti has been a Dalmatian breeder and enthusiast since 1969, is an approved AKC judge and was a member of the AKC Board of Directors from 1995 through 2011.

The First Kennel Club in Georgia

We serve the community of Dog lovers in greater Atlanta by sponsoring Dog shows, Obedience, Agility, and Rally. 

The Atlanta Kennel Club is an all-breed dog club. It has served the dog fancy in metro Atlanta, Georgia since 1900. Its mission is to promote, advance and protect the interests of purebred dogs and to encourage good sportsmanship at all purebred events as recognized by the American Kennel Club, and to educate the fancy, government and the public regarding responsible dog ownership. The Atlanta Kennel Club is a member of the American Kennel Club.

Today, we serve communities from Alpharetta to Palmetto, Lithonia to Marietta, Stone Mountain to Mableton, giving dog fanciers in the entire metro area a club to call their own. Members meet monthly for dinner and an informative speaker. We sponsor two major dog shows annually which attract over 3000 entries each.

The Atlanta Kennel Club invites you to join with us in our love of Dogs and the Sport of Dogs. Visit our meetings, which are open to the public, and above all, come to our Dog Shows! There you will find the finest dogs of every breed - and their enthusiastic owners. We love our dogs, and love having fun with our dogs!

The Atlanta Kennel Club was able to provide this Pet Disaster Relief Trailer to the Georgia Emergency Management Agency through the AKC Reunite Program.  Reunite was formed by the American Kennel Club to provide much needed pet disaster relief.  The trailers would be taken to the site of emergency shelter for pet owners so that victims of disasters could be assured that their beloved pets would be cared for near them.  This program was prompted by the many instances in recent disaster situations where pet owners often risked their own lives rather than leave their pets behind while they were taken to emergency shelters. The Atlanta Kennel Club is proud to be the first kennel club in the country to provide this valuable asset to our state.
