Welcome to the Mountaineer Kennel Club Web site. We've been helping dogs live better lives in northern West Virginia since being incorporated in 1945.
The Mountaineer Kennel Club (MKC) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that encourages the responsible breeding, training, handling and maintenance of dogs by both current and prospective dog fanciers.
MKC is a proud sponsor of the AKC Canine Health Foundation.
