GVKC 75th ANNIVERSARY CALENDAR!
This calendar was created to celebrate our 75th anniversary in Rochester, NY. This is a 15 mont calendar from October 2012 to December 2013.
There are 13 different months with member dogs in well know locations around the Rochester area. There is a dedication page and an acknowledgement
page showing the breed, registered name of the dog(s) and the owner/members. The dog pictures for each month are different from the pictures on the cover.
We are selling these as a fund raiser for the club. The cost is $10.00 per calendar plus postage. Click below for an order form.
For over 75 years the GVKC has made its home in the Rochester, New York area. The GVKC is a member club of the American Kennel Club, and is comprised of people like yourself, who are interested in all breeds of purebred dogs.
The purpose of the GVKC is to further the advancement of all breeds of purebred dogs; to protect and advance the interests of all breeds of dogs and encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and performance events; to conduct sanctioned matches, dog shows, and performance events under the rules of the American Kennel Club; and to provide educational programs and information to the general public.
Meetings of the Genesee Valley Kennel Club are held the second Monday of each month (no meeting in August). Guests are always welcome! Usually, a program is scheduled for each meeting on a topic of interest from a variety of dog-related subjects. Programs may include speakers, films or demonstrations. The programs cover just about everything of interest to dog enthusiasts. At our meetings, we are also informed of and discuss proposals and changes sponsored by the American Kennel Club. A refreshment time is usually held, and provides a great way to meet other "dog people" experienced in showing and breeding. GVKC members are always willing to share their interest and expertise in dogs, and welcome fellow enthusiasts. more info
The GVKC is an active organization. The GVKC holds two AKC All-Breed Dog Shows and Obedience Trials in July of each year, and an annual sanctioned Match Show. The GVKC also holds health clinics, publishes a Breeders Guide, and provides an informational phone line. We have a variety of committees all working towards dog-related activities.
For specific information about meeting dates, times, programs, location, and activities of the club, or for help with dog related questions or problems, call the GVKC Phone Line at (585) 249-9204 or contact a club officer or board member.

The AKC has now provided an electronic format to track dog legislation by state.
Use the following link to get a list of what is happening in our state and other states:
The nice part of this service by the AKC is that you can click on any of the proposed laws listed and be linked directly to the wording of the law as it is posted on the NY state web site. Rather than depend on the email alerts that we all get that give a summary of the bills, you can now look at the exact wording to make your own decision as to whether you do or do not like the wording and/or action involved. You can then write to your local Assembly or Senate representative to voice your opinion.
