WHO ARE WE?
We are an American Kennel Club (AKC) affiliated club located in Washington County, Maryland.
The home of MDKC is the Mason Dixon Hall at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center 7313 Sharpsburg Pike, Boonsboro, MD. This heated, air-conditioned building was constructed and donated to the Ag Center by the Mason and Dixon Kennel Club in 1995. We recently added non-slip rubber flooring to the building. We also have a large outdoor area totally fenced in for training. This home is the result of dedicated members working throughout the years toward a vision that is now a reality. We invite you to come and visit this wonderful facility.
WHAT ARE OUR OBJECTIVES?
