Welcome to the Brevard Kennel Club, Inc. (aka BKC)!
Promoting The Sport Of Purebred Dogs
We are group of people interested in advancing the interests of purebred dogs and the welfare of animals in general by education, financial assistance to worthy animal related causes and the protection and encouragement of dogs and dog ownership.
BKC supports various events that are the training ground of the dog fancy, giving the opportunity for puppies, neophyte handlers, aspiring judges, and formative clubs to practice their several skills until they are ready to enter the big time -- the AKC point show. Since being licensed in 1973 by the American Kennel Club to give AKC sanctioned point shows and obedience trials, the club has provided two such events each year. BKC provides basic training for dogs and handlers in a weekly conformation class.
Public education is an important facet of the club's activities. Dog exhibitions enable the general public to get acquainted with types of dogs that they may not have previously seen and by talking with owners, to learn what type of dog would best suit their situation.
Occasional seminars on more advanced subjects are provided for the serious dog-owner and the club's monthly meetings occasionally feature a program on one of the many aspects of dog ownership. BKC meets on the first Wednesday of each month at El Charro at 916 Florida Avenue, Cocoa, FL 32926. A social hour/dinner is available before the meeting from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. The general membership meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. Anyone who is interested in dogs is cordially invited to attend.
