Manawatu Kennel Association

An All Breeds Club established in 1893, with all Shows now being held at the Manawatu Canine Centre Grounds at Ashhurst Domain. These grounds were officially opened by His Worship The Mayor Paul Rieger on 6 February 1989, and provide a wonderful setting for shows , with ample parking area and enough space to enable us to offer decent sized rings for all groups at our All Breed shows as well as the Specialist shows that are held in conjuction with them. With the completion of the Mens and Ladies showers, we are now in a position to offer to the NZKC members who attend our shows, a level of hospitality that is almost second to none. This applies during the Show and to those members who wish to camp overnight. We have a small but enthusiastic committee who work hard to give all our exhibitors a well run and enjoyable experience when they attend one of our shows. If you would like to join our merry band please contact the Secretary at her email address.
