Kyeamba Kennel & Training Club was formed in the 1980’s and held training on a number of different grounds around Wagga. In the early 90’s the Club applied to Wagga Wagga City Council (WWCC) for the permanent use of a ground. Upon being offered several choices it was decided that a ground on the outskirts of Wagga with an existing toilet block would be ideal and so KKTC moved to Norman Duck Oval, San Isidore.
At this time the ground was more of a paddock, complete with rabbit holes. Work to improve the grounds began with the installation of a fence to define the boundary of the ‘sports ground’.
Several major projects, including erecting lights and the original Clubhouse had a major impact on the running of the Club. For the first time night training became possible in winter, while the new amenities improved the running of trials and shows.
In 2007, with the help of the WWCC Community Grants program, KKTC erected the Barry MacDonald Clubhouse. The dedication of the Clubhouse recognised the momentous contribution and continued importance of Barry in the running of the Club. The new Clubhouse continues to enhance the experience of KKTC members, allowing us to offer a wide range of activities.
Most recently KKTC, again with the support of the WWCC Community Grants program, has constructed an enclosed area for off- leash training. The development of this area is ongoing, with plans for extensive landscaping to make it more user friendly.
KKTC offers training for beginners through to competition level. Whether you are looking for help with specific issues, are interested in competition or simply want to enjoy relaxed social outings for you and your dog, KKTC has something for you.
Although only small, KKTC has an enthusiastic group of volunteers who continue to make our Club a friendly, welcoming place for owners and their dogs.
