The Thousand Islands Kennel & Obedience Club is an All-Breed club with a long and impressive history. It has served the Brockville and area community for over fifty years. It was founded in 1966 by a group of dog enthusiasts from the area. The founding members were Jack & Joyce Bernhardt, George & Jean Cornforth, Art & Gerry Buss, Mary & Bill Hobbs, Mel & Brenda Richardson, Garnet Irving, and Jack & Jackie Dupont.
TIKO has held annual Conformation Shows & Obedience trials for fifty years now; usually in the month of August. The weekend long event is very well attended by exhibitors from Canada and the United States. Spectators are always welcome. Watch our Event Calendar for dates and specific times in order to watch the judging of your favourite breeds. TIKO has also run Obedience and Conformation Handler training classes throughout their years as a club. Those classes have helped many local dog owners to ensure their dogs became great canine citizens and many have gone on to compete as well as succeed in licensed event competitions as well.
TIKO Present Time
TIKO's general membership meets at least 4 times per year for formal updates on the club's business activities and status. Other less formal get togethers such as Christmas parties and summer picnics are popular events enjoyed by all. Please go to the Events Calendar to view when the next get together will be held.
TIKO strives to promote the value of purebred dogs to the general public, as well as encouraging responsible care and ownership of all dogs.
