Great Smoky Mountain Dog Club

GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN DOG CLUB (GSMDC) is a UKC-affiliated multi-breed kennel club located in the Great Smoky Mountain region. GSMDC was organized in 2003 and held its' first conformation shows in 2005. Every April and October, GSMDC hosts conformation shows. Sometimes the club offers performance events, too.

The Great Smoky Mountain Dog Club's purpose is to educate the public about dog breeds, host dog sporting events, and invite fanciers to east Tennessee for various competitions. We welcome all who support the standards and contribute to the success of the GSMDC and the United Kennel Club: breeders, fanciers, and handlers who wish to exhibit purebred dogs in the spirit of Good Sportsmanship.

Great Smoky Mountain Dog Club proudly supports Embark DNA testing.

The Great Smoky Mountain Dog Club is proud to announce a new partnership with Embark, the world's leading canine genetics company. Embark for Breeder DNA tests are >99% accurate on mutation tests and are the only genetic COI% test available for breeders. GSMDC has chosen to work with Embark because of our shared values of responsible breeding and commitment to canine health. Embark offers a comprehensive product for breeders that includes all the relevant genetic information you need to better manage breeding programs: genetic health risks, physical traits, genetic COI, and breed ancestry.

As part of this program, Embark will offer our members exclusive savings of up to $40 off the Embark for Breeders DNA kit. If interested, please contact breedclubs@embarkvet.com to receive our club’s preferred pricing. If you’re new to Embark, your first Embark for Breeders DNA kit is just $99!

This program also provides our club with expert educational content, access to Embark experts such as veterinary geneticists, the opportunity to offer input on future research, and event support.   

Embark for Breeders DNA kits offer breed-specific health conditions, as well as results for 250+ genetic health conditions, 35 physical traits, and genetic COI% all with one swab. For more information visit: embarkvet.com/breeders

REFUND POLICY: No Refunds. No Refunds in the event a dog is absent, disqualified, or excused by veterinarian or judge, or barred from competition by action of the Event Committee. No Refund of entries will be made because of riots, civil disturbances, or other acts beyond the control of the host organization which make it impossible to open or complete an event. Exceptions: 1) If there is a Pandemic and show site is forced to be closed before first show date. 2) If there is a natural disaster that destroys the show site before first show date. 3) Bereavement of an immediate family member. Should a refund be granted for any of the above conditions, a 20% administration fee will be withheld in addition to fees charged by UKC to club for each show the dog was entered.
