                Established in 1934, Silver Bay Kennel Club of San Diego (SBKC) is one of the oldest kennel clubs in Southern California. Major Charles Beale, USMC, founded the club, which held its first show with an entry of 401 dogs and continued with two shows a year. By 1982, the SBKC show was listed as the eleventh largest show in the United States with 2,603 dogs competing in conformation at the SBKC’s 50th Anniversary show in 1984. SBKC celebrated its 100th All Breed Show and Obedience Trial on February 25, 1990, with Specialties held the day before.

                The Club garnered national attention when selected to host the Pedigree Brand Junior Showmanship "National Invitational" on February 22, 1997, televised by ESPN. The Open Senior winner traveled to Crufts dog show in England to compete for the world title and the Open Junior winner represented the USA at the World Show in Puerto Rico.  In 2003, SBKC held its first agility trial, an athletic event that requires conditioning, concentration, training and team work.  A segment for the Jeopardy! TV show was filmed at its 2009 show.

                SBKC has an activist, devoted, limited working membership.  From 1972 until 2003, James E. Frank served as president and was instrumental in establishing a “Pet for Seniors” program. This program helps senior citizens adopt a dog at several local shelters with SBKC paying the adoption fees.  The program has successfully united approximately 900 dogs with senior citizens.  SBKC donates show proceeds to many different organizations concerned with animal welfare including, most recently, AKC Canine Health Foundation, California Federation of Dog Clubs, Canine Companions for Independence, Fiesta Island Dog Owners, National Animal Interest Alliance and San Diego Humane Society & SPCA.  In order to help educate the public about various AKC breeds and to promote responsible dog ownership, SBKC started a "Meet the Breeds” program in 2000, increasing AKC breed exhibits from 10 to 47 by 2012. 

                The primary goal of the SBKC is to put on a good show for the exhibitors and to provide educational information and support to all dog fanciers.  Throughout the years, SBKC has stood ready to help, levering its prestigious position in the dog world to offer a hand to the novice dog fancier and the seasoned exhibitor alike. The members of SBKC hope their time and effort will be evident—that you will find this a wonderful place to show your dogs and simply enjoy your time here in San Diego.  SBKC extends a hearty welcome to all exhibitors and expresses its appreciation for the loyal support given the club over the years.
