Walmer and Suburban Kennel Club
(affiliated to the Kennel Union of South Africa)

The Club was established in 1934 to serve the growing town of Walmer, now incorporated into Port Elizabeth, and will host its 80th Championship Breed and discipline show in 2019.

For many years, the Club has been the unofficial home of the Labrador Retriever in the Eastern Cape, thanks to the efforts of the late Alf Skinner and his Casalinho Labradors, bred by the late Trevor Tinker, which competed in breed, obedience and
tracking competitions.

The Club is now in the position to fulfil one of Alf’s dreams and will hold field trials in
the Eastern Cape during the month of August each year.

Field Trial training is offered with training sessions held weekly.

Advice is also offered on breed showing, obedience and working trials.
