Praise for the WKC
When I bought my first pure bred dog I did not know where to go for conformation and showing information, so I looked up the nearest all-breed club and it was Waukesha Kennel club. Ever since the first meeting, they have made me feel welcome and part of the club. I now sit on the Board and help wherever I can.
I’ve taken 2 classes with the WKC—S.T.A.R Puppy and GCG, and loved them both! My trainer made the class fun while teaching my dog to “work” and listen. Each dog in the class was able to work at their own speed, but they all learned really fast! There was a lot of good information and feedback given, and my pup and I looked forward to class every week. We’re definitely going to sign up for another one and would recommend a class with the WKC!
The Waukesha Kennel Club puts on a wonderful show! It's well-organized, offers exciting special attraction classes, and the venue is excellent. I am thrilled that the Wisconsin Airedale Terrier Club holds its annual Specialty in Waukesha. This show will forever be near and dear to my heart.
