    About Us:

    The Irish Kennel Club holds a register of purebred dogs in Ireland, issuing export licenses, pedigree certificates and transfer of ownership certification where required. It is the key authority on pedigree dogs for both breeders and buyers.


    Training and Support
    The Irish Kennel Club’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme helps educate dog owners and develop dogs into happy, loyal and well-behaved companions. The Good Citizen Test is offered by approved clubs and training classes, ensuring a high standard of training for owners.


    The Irish Kennel Club runs a number of activities for members, including exhibitions, agility tests, and working trials.
