The ODKC is one of Ontario’s oldest purebred dog show clubs, originating in 1951. They have always been strong supporters of the purebred community and responsible canine ownership in general. Together with the CKC and CPE, they see this as an ideal venue to offer a great event that will promote dog shows and responsible purebred dog breeders while offering many educational opportunities for breeders, exhibitors and animal lovers alike.

The Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) is the primary registry body for purebred dogs in Canada and currently recognizes 175 breeds. As a non-profit organization, the CKC is dedicated to encouraging, guiding, and advancing the interests of purebred dogs and their responsible owners and breeders in Canada and promoting the knowledge and understanding of the benefits which dogs can bring to Canadian society.

The CKC is incorporated under Animal Pedigree Act, a federal statute under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture. The organization includes approximately 20,000 individual members and over 700 breed clubs across Canada. The Club registers purebred dogs, regulates dog shows and performance events, and speaks out on major issues concerning dog ownership and the health & welfare of dogs across Canada.

The Canadian Pet Expo is Canada’s largest pet event that incorporates the excitement mixed with participation of both families and their pets en-grading a message of promoting responsible pet ownership. All of the CPE events encapsulate all pets to show the diversity of companionship that pets provide daily to many families.
