Arapahoe Kennel Club


Bark in the Park

Meet the Breeds Public Education Event


Thank you to Pam Buhl, Rachel Paulson, Donna Dannen,

Jodee Putnins and Lori Elvera for making this important event a success!



DSA’s primary requirement as an AKC Specialty Club, 

is to educate the public about our wonderful Samoyed breed! 


The Arapahoe Kennel Club Bark in the Park is an excellent opportunity for us to have one on one contact with the public and educate them about Samoyeds.  As a whole, this showcase educates the public not only on the breeds, but their health care, grooming, importance of good obedience training, and their contributions to society.  This is our chance to teach responsible dog ownership, as well as the importance of dogs in everyday life. 


It is also a terrific opportunity if you are planning a litter to network with possible future puppy families.

DSA Lights it up at the Parade of Lights!


For the seventh year, DSA will participate in Denver's 9News Parade of Lights. Lori Elvera once again served as coordinator and liaison for this event. As part of the requirements, and fun of participating in this particular parade, meant that our costumes must feature lights! We decided to sew/pin battery-operated LED lights to our Wolf Packs® Dog Packs. The lights accented our beautiful Samoyed's silver tipped coats and the dog packs emphasized our working breed heritage.

Of  course the Sammy smile instilled the spirit of the holidays in everyone!

What is the K9 Cancer Walk?

The "K9 Cancer Walk" is a fund raising effort benefiting the Morris Animal Foundation's Canine Cancer Campaign. The Canine Cancer Campaign is a focused, targeted effort to raise $30 million to funds which will support 10-15 years of canine cancer research studies with the goal of finding a cure for canine cancer. walk with or without dogs to support canine cancer research. All the funds raised at the K9 Cancer Walks go directly to fund the much needed research at veterinary science research facilities across the country to study cancer prevention, develop early detection methods, develop new cancer treatments and ultimately, find a cure for canine cancer. K9 Cancer Walks are hosted by volunteers in dog friendly parks in their communities. Participating in the walk is a great way to memorialize a beloved dog(s) lost to cancer and make a brighter future for your current companion(s).
