The New River Valley Kennel Club is an American Kennel Club licensed club serving the New River Valley in southwest Virginia. Our members are involved in conformation showing, obedience, rally, agility, breeding, training and every aspect of responsible dog ownership and sport that the AKC offers. The breeds represented by our membership are many but our dedication to dogs brings us together to share our experiences, devotion and love of dogs.
The New River Valley Kennel Club hosts an all breed conformation show in conjunction with the Roanoke Kennel Club and the James River Kennel Club under the banner of The Mountain Valley Cluster, a five-show cluster in Salem, VA, each summer. We also host annual two-day obedience and rally trials as well as offering Canine Good Citizens tests. Click on any of the links at the top of this page and get to know more about us. We cordially invite you to join us at any of our meetings on the second Tuesday of each month in Blacksburg.
