The Kennel Club of Buffalo, Inc. is comprised of over seventy hardworking individuals, who each bring their own expertise to the organization. Among us are those whose families have a long association with the sport of purebred dogs, members newer to the fancy, and everyone in between. Included in our membership are judges, breeders and handlers, as well as those active in business, education, science and the arts. 

The Kennel Club of Buffalo, Inc. serves several functions aside from the Nickel City Cluster dog show. Our club educates the public about activities and sports that involve dogs and their owners, promotes responsible dog ownership, and assists people in finding responsible sources for purebred dogs for their family pets. We also provide conformation clinics, puppy matches and many other dog related events. 

Membership in the club is not exclusive. We welcome people with a positive interest in dogs, and demonstrate their willingness to be active in the club and to support its activities.
