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 and Fall with discounted pricing on many tests, shots, OFA xrays and more.
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.
please learn about your chosen breed beforehand. Visit a local dog show and chat with an exhibitor of the breed you like. We urge you to buy your puppy from a breeder who has experience in that breed, does health testing on their dogs and breeds to the AKC breed standard.
