The KCFA will host a celebration of K9 Veterans Day (officially designated in Wisconsin as March 13) on Sunday, March 11, 2018, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. at the American Legion, 201 S. Water Street E., Fort Atkinson. The public is invited to attend to help us honor these K9 heroes.
Advance entries for the Kennel Club of Fort Atkinson’s 24th Annual Spring Fun Match close April 25. The Fun Match will be held Saturday, April 28, 2018, at the Western Waukesha County Dog Training Club in Ixonia.
Classes include Obedience and Rally (AKC rules), Conformation, Junior Showmanship (including PeeWees, 2 – 4 years old), and a Rare Breed Show. Our Fun Match is the perfect opportunity to “get your feet wet” in the competition ring or to brush up skills for upcoming shows and trials.
Club founders Patty Beran, Marleen LaPlant and Rita Hasel are pictured here with a congratulatory plaque from the Fort Atkinson Area Chamber of Commerce.

The senior dogs of KCFA were celebrated at a recent party, with nine dogs in attendance ranging from 10 – 15 years of age. Doggie trivia and a few doggie tricks were the entertainment, and refreshments included doggie cupcakes and doggie whine, “furreal!” Human participants sang “Happy Birthday” to honor all the dogs’ special days.
