The Association of Nihon Ken - Events

The Association of Nihon Ken is committed to the promotion of the six Nihon Ken breeds. We endeavour to travel around the country educating the general public about the different breeds at country shows and events. On this page we will keep you updated about any upcoming events that the ANK will be attending.

We are looking for social, well-behaved examples of the six Nihon Ken breeds as well as breed experts to accompany us to events across the country as meet-and-greet dogs. If you would like to join us at any of our events please get in touch by emailing and we will provide all of the necessary information. We hope to see you in the future!
