Mattaponi Kennel Club is an AKC all-breed club offering agility training. MKC hosts conformation, obedience, tracking, herding and agility trials in Northern Virginia. The club also holds Therapy Dog International and Canine Good Citizen tests.

FastCAT May 20-25!

MKC will join with Potomac Valley Samoyed Club (PVSC) to host 12 FastCAT events at White Post Va. starting on May 20 and going through May 25th. Each event will have a 50-run limit. The event will be open for online entries only at SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN RACING once the premium is complete. Those interested in competing in this event need to read the Premium carefully, as requirements will be in place to assure proper social distancing, and other measures needed at this time for everyone’s safety.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions placed by Virginia Governor Northam, Mattaponi Kennel Club has canceled the May and June meetings. If Governor Northam decides to reduce the time we are ordered to stay at home, the Club will revisit this decision.

We are sorry to announce that the Mattaponi Kennel Club FASTCAT events scheduled for May 15-16-17, 2020 have been cancelled. The Club hopes to see you all for our October 9-10-11, 2020 FASTCAT events at White Post.

The June Dogwood Cluster Conformation Show has been cancelled due to concerns with COVID-19. We hope to see you there next year.

After much deliberation, MKC decided to cancel our June Agility Trial and our July Rally/Obedience trial. The premium for the Rally/Obedience trial has not gone out so there are no entries to cancel. If you entered our June agility trial, you should have received an email from Laurene Galgano (Gone Doggin). If you entered on the AKC website, you will need to go to the site and pull your entries. Not to worry if you used worker coupons as part of your entry, Laurene will keep track of the coupons and apply them to the MKC October trial.

Agility classes as scheduled previously will not be held. If the Club is able to provide classes once the Governor’s Order is rescinded, the Mattaponi Agility Dogs Instruction group will announce a new class schedule for the remainder of the agility class season, keeping in mind MKC may not hold classes while the Prince William County Fair is going on.

We hope everyone stays safe during these trying times.  Please remember to keep your distance, wash your hands, if possible stay home, and maintain safety guidelines.
