In early spring of 1987, approximately 20 area dog fanciers met to form the Gadsden County Kennel Club. The organization immediately offered show handling classes to the public and began holding Fun Matches. In 1989 the club was sanctioned by the American Kennel Club under the name Ochlockonee River Kennel Club of Florida, Inc.
Today, we are a vibrant club offering many American Kennel Club sanctioned events. Our annual February Dog Show hosts 6 Obedience and Rally Trials, 3 days of Agility Trials, 5 days of Dock Diving, 5 days of FASTCAT (9 trials total), 3 days of Lure Coursing (5 trials) and five days of All-Breed Conformation Shows (6 shows).
