Member of the American Kennel Club
The Del Monte Kennel Club was founded to promote the sport of purebred dogs and encourage responsible dog ownership. In addition to our obedience and handling classes, the Club sponsors two All-Breed Conformation Dog Shows, two Obedience Trials, two Rally Trials and a two day Agility Trial each year. Purebred dogs from California and the U.S. participate in these shows.
Del Monte Kennel Club's first AKC Sanctioned Show was held in 1924.

It was her fifth California all breed best this year for the two-year old. "Duffy" is the first Monterey Peninsula dog to go BIS at Del Monte Kennel Club since a Wire Fox Terrier owned by Mrs. Bunker in Pebble Beach did decades ago.
