MRKC was established in 1982. We have several members that are active in AKC conformation, obedience, rally, agility, tracking, barn hunt and more. We also have members that don't compete with their dog(s) at all, but instead have a family pet and joined our club to hang out with other dog lovers.
Our club is the place for all dog lovers whether they have a purebred, mixed breed, rescue or dog they bred themselves. MRKC is for members with a companion dog, performance dog, show dog, or a dog that just wants to be the queen or king of the couch.
You can download our bylaws and the club application from our Files page.
We hold meetings in the Union/Washington/Gray Summit, Missouri area at least 6 times a year.
We put on an annual health clinic each Spring with discounted pricing on many tests, shots and more.
We have added a second health clinic in the Fall of 2021 and 2022. Check for updates to see if we will have one in the Fall of 2023.
We are host to conformation shows and obedience, rally and agility trials at Purina Farms each year.
We are a working club so members who participate in AKC events and earn titles on their dogs and complete the club's requirements earn a nice plaque at our annual awards banquet.
Food, Friends, Fellowship, Fun and Fur - These all go together for a good time at our picnic every Fall.
We do so much more. Some examples include hosting the International Canine Wine and Cheese Festival, ringing the bell for the Franklin County Humane Society, and raising money for K9 ballistic vests.
If you are looking to add a purebred dog to your family, please learn about your chosen breed beforehand. We urge you to buy your puppy from a breeder who has experience in that breed, does health testing on the parents, and allows you to see where the puppy was raised and meet at least one of the parents.
