S
ince 1968, Trap Falls Kennel Club (TFKC) has been an active non-profit all-breed member club of the American Kennel Club®. TFKC is devoted to the betterment of the purebred dog and is an advocate for the purebred and mixed breed dog as a family companion. Additionally, Trap Falls strives to promote responsible dog ownership in the community through public education programs and events.

Our members are interested dog lovers, pet owners; breeders; trainers, participants in Therapy Dog programs, and exhibitors in conformation, obedience, rally, agility and other competitive dog sports.

Two big events on which Trap Falls prides itself are its annual AKC all -Breed dog show in Springfield, Massachusetts and Responsible Dog Ownership Day in September, which celebrates the joy of dog ownership in a fun family-friendly atmosphere. Trap Falls has received the AKC® Community Achievement Award for hosting a successful Responsible Dog Ownership Day, multiple times.

Trap Falls also has a long tradition of community service and public education – offering training classes in obedience, Canine Good Citizen® (CGC) training and testing, and TDI® (Therapy Dogs International) testing; hosting free programs on doggie safety; donating supplies and funds to local shelters and Hurricane Sandy victims, and sending needed supplies overseas to K-9 units based in Afghanistan and Iraq. Most recently TFKC helped fund, with AKC Reunite, the purchase of a new K-9 officer in Newtown CT.

Monthly meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month, and outside guests are encouraged to attend, as there are often speakers and programs of interest to dog owners and dog lovers. Recent presentations have included everything from first-aid; creating wills and trusts for your furry companions; to massage techniques to use on your dog.
