Otago Kennel Association

OTAGO KENNEL ASSOCIATION (Inc) The Beginning: On the 12 March 1952 the first meeting of the Otago Kennel Association took place. This came about by the amalgamation of the Otago Kennel Club and the Dunedin Fanciers Club (Inc). The Otago Kennel Association has had a chequered career over the years, Originally we were part of the Otago Agricultural and Pastoral Association when they held their first Annual Show on the 18th November 1877 and 14 classes of dogs were scheduled. Later (Date unknown to writer) the name became the Dunedin Fanciers Club Inc., which catered for Poultry, Pigeons, Canaries, Budgerigars, Foreign Birds, Dogs and Children's Classes, these Shows ran in conjunction with the A & P Show. In 1935 there was a split with a group breaking away and forming the Otago Kennel Club (Inc), this Club was incorporated on the 24th June 1935. Due to a downturn of members participating in Club activities and the soaring cost of maintaining our Club Rooms the building in Melbourne Street was disposed of at the end of 2003 to the Otago Wood Turners Guild.
