WKC hosts several events each year as listed below. Dates are shown on the calendar (link below). Several weeks before each AKC-licensed event, we will post the premium which can be downloaded from this page. If you would like to volunteer at an event, please visit our Volunteer page.
WKC held its Tracking Tests on Sunday, March 12, 2017 at the KV Ranch in Palisades, WA. Dogs were tested at two levels: Tracking Dog (TD) and Tracking Dog Excellent (TDX).
AKC Tracking Tests allow dogs to demonstrate their natural ability to recognize and follow human scent. This vigorous outdoor activity is great for canine athletes. Unlike Agility and Obedience events that require a dog to qualify three times, a dog only needs to complete one track successfully to earn each title. Volunteers are invited to help with this interesting one-day event.

WKC held its Pointing Dog Hunt tests on May 6th and 7th at the Hughes Ranch outside of Almira, Washington. This was the fifth year the Club has hosted this event. This year we again offered a “double-double,” which means there were two tests each day for two days.
Dogs may compete in the Hunt Test at three levels: Junior Hunter, Senior Hunter, and Master Hunter. To enter, a dog must be at least 6 months old and a pointing breed.
Volunteers are needed for the following activities:
- Chairman of Hospitality (1)
- Hospitality Helpers (3 or more)
- Bird Planters
- Gunners (must prequalify per AKC regulations)
- Field Marshals

Community Dog Fun Days
WKC hosts Dog Fun Days to give children and adults an opportunity to get acquainted with well-behaved dogs and to watch dogs do Agility and other exercises. Typically, these fun days are held at Walla Walla Point Park in Wenatchee and/or in conjunction with other annual Wenatchee events. We also schedule visits to local assisted living centers in the Wenatchee area so residents can enjoy our canine companions. Watch the website for more information as dates get confirmed.
