The Kennel Club of Palm Springs is proud to announce that our second AKC Reunite Pet Disaster Relief has been received at Riverside County (CA) Department of Animal Services. We and other area organizations raise and donate money to fund the procurement of these trailers, which will be of great service to the pets in our community in the event of a natural disaster. 

Thanks to Pam Hogan and Officer James Huffman who worked with Carol Silverberg of KCPS and and Megan at AKC Reunite to make this happen. And a big thank you to all of you who participated with donations or other assistance. 

Funding of our third trailer is also now complete, so keep an eye on this page for updates on when it will be delivered.

We will again be having obedience classes this fall, starting Tuesday, October 8th. Classes are located at the Palm Springs Police Department in the K-9 unit practice yard. Our instructor is Rick Klassen of Forest K-9 Training. Classes last for 9 weeks, with the first week being a sign-up and orientation meeting with no dogs in attendance. Classes last an hour each week and Rick is always available for questions after class or by phone. For more information, please call Rick at 760-333-4466 or email him at


Can you believe that it's time to start thinking about the 2025 Show? The commitment form for clubs wanting to hold a Group or Breed specialty is due by June 15, 2024, just a couple of months away. Don't be late! 



A huge congratulations to Curt Curtis for being named the winner of the AKC Lifetime Achievement Award for Companion Events! We are fortunate and very proud to have Curt and Karla's involvement with our Kennel Club of Palm Springs show! Click here to see the announcement on the AKC website.


The Kennel Club of Palm Springs has exciting news to share with all of our friends in the dog fancy:

  Our January Shows have grown through the years, and we have had more and more requests to accommodate Group and Specialty Clubs on our grounds on Thursday and Friday.

In response to this, we have been able to work with Empire Polo Grounds/Golden Voice to arrange a larger show site, at the same location - just immediately adjacent to where our shows have been held in recent years.

  This new show location will allow KCPS to add 6 additional conformation rings, more reserved grooming spaces in larger tents, park our Motor Homes on grass, and to be able to do away with the dog relief stations with the plastic and shavings that were needed this year.   We very much appreciate the past support of all of our Thursday and Friday Clubs, and of course, all of our exhibitors who have come with their entries and helped our shows to grow.  We wanted to share this GOOD news with you.  

   More details will be available in the future - but we wanted to let you know the positive and exciting changes we have in store for the 2024 Kennel Club of Palm Springs Show Cluster Weekend.   See you in January 2024!
