Founded in 1945, South Shore Kennel Club (SSKC) is a non-profit, all-breed dog club based in Marshfield, MA and a member of the American Kennel Club (AKC). It is made up of dog breeders, exhibitors, owners and enthusiasts from the South Shore area which extends from south of Boston to north of the Cape Cod Canal.

The objectives of the club are:

  • To further the advancement of all breeds of pure-bred dog

  • To do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of all breeds of pure-bred dogs and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and obedience trials

  • To conduct sanctioned matches and dog shows under the rules of the American Kennel Club


Our members participate in a large number of canine activities ranging from conformation, obedience, rally, hunt trials, lure coursing, therapy dog visitations to nursing homes and public education events.


We encourage anyone who shares the enjoyment of dogs in their lives and family to join the club.
