The Greenwich Kennel Club (GKC) is one of the oldest all-breed dog clubs in the tri-state area of Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. Its membership is comprised of area dog enthusiasts with interest in conformation, obedience and performance events. GKC held its first annual all-breed dog show in 1930. Today, this well-established outdoor dog show is one of the largest held in the New England area. GKC is a non-profit organization that supports various animal welfare groups and health research programs through the proceeds of their shows.
