MCDKC - About Us

Organised Dog Shows in the South East go back to the late 19th Century, with competitions at the various Agricultural Shows. The first Dog Section at the Mt Gambier AHS was in 1879. Several Kennel Clubs were formed following the Second World War and the Easter weekend circuit developed. As the committees of both The Mount Gambier Kennel Club and The Crater City Kennel Club were the same people holding different positions, and there were two lots of affiliation fees, etc, steps were put in place mid 2011 to amalgamate the two Clubs. After a lot of research, the appropriate steps were taken. The paperwork was finally approved by DogsSA and the new Club - Mount City and District Kennel Club - came into being in January 2012. Their first event was Easter Dogfest 2012.

The Club conducts two weekends of Championship Shows each year. The first is a 4 day event with 6 Championship Shows, held on the Easter Long Weekend, with 2 Shows on the Saturday and Sunday. The second weekend of Four Championship Shows is held in conjunction with the Mt Gambier AHS in October and is a 3 day event, with 2 Shows on the Saturday. These Shows are held at the Club's own grounds - Len Lewis Memorial Dog Park, adjacent to the AHS Showgrounds on Pick Avenue, Mt Gambier.
