The roots of the Jamshedpur Kennel Club trace back to April 7, 1977, when a group of dog lovers came together to address the lack of attention and care for dogs in the Eastern part of India, particularly Bihar. Affiliated with the Kennel Club India Chennai, the club has been dedicated to promoting the state of the canine world through scientific breeding, training, dog shows, trials, registration of dogs, and expert veterinary advice.
As the 74th-76th Championship Dog Show unfolds, Jamshedpur sets the stage for an unforgettable extravaganza, resonating with a symphony of barks, wagging tails, and glittering eyes that speak volumes about the special bond shared between man and his four-legged confidante.
