Indian National Kennel Club

INKC was established in 1957 to increase awareness and popularity of dogs and to promote their proper breeding, rearing, and training.

Dog Registration

Maintaining a true and proper register and record of pedigree is the backbone of the INKC and is crucial to breeding dogs true to type and free from heriditary informities.

Dog Breeding

INKC encourages planned and responsible breeding of dogs, always with a view to achieve the ideal for every breed.

Dog Shows

INKC dog shows provide a public platform for enthusiasts to have their dogs assessed by experts, and are a guide for dedicated breeders to produce better specimens.

Indian Breeds

Right from it’s inception, INKC has recognized and showcased our own Indian pure breeds, which has made them visible to – and appreciated by – the world.

INKC Motto

Dogs for a Good Life, A Good Life for Dogs

We believe that:

  • Dogs are a boon to humans, and deserve to be treated with love and understanding
  • The love of dogs – particularly within the wider ambit of love of nature – induces men to be nobler denizens of our planet
  • The companionship of dogs is an essential element in the full and balanced development of human personality
  • The love of dogs as man’s best friend is universal, and cuts across status, cultures and barriers between the peoples of the world
  • Pure-bred dogs enhance the pleasure and purpose of keeping, breeding, and training dogs
  • The physical characteristics, behavioral traits and working ability of pure-bred dogs are a valuable inheritance which needs to be conserved, and the integrity of the various breeds scrupulously maintained as required by the ideal
