Minneapolis Kennel Club welcomes potential members to its meetings. Join us, so that you may learn about the club and meet members.

Within the club, there are three types of membership which are open to persons 18 years of age and older (Regular, Lifetime and Honorary) , and one type for those younger than 18 years of age (Junior).

  • Regular - routine membership for those 18 years of age or older in good standing with the American Kennel Club. This membership comes with all club privileges.
  • Lifetime - special status membership for those in good standing with the American Kennel Club. This membership is awarded by the Board of Directors for long standing meritorious service to the club and to the sport of dogs and comes with all club privileges.
  • Honorary - special status membership for an individual in good standing with the American Kennel Club. This membership is awarded by the Board for those who have shown meritorious service to the club, or to the sport of dogs and comes with all club privileges except voting and office holding.
  • Junior - routine membership for a person under age 18 years of age in good standing with the American Kennel Club. This membership comes with all club privileges except voting and office holding.
