Vernon and District Kennel Club was formed in 1963 by a group of purebred dog breeders and fanciers led by Col. William Lamb, who became the first president. Col. Lamb had English Setters.

The first dog shows were held in Polson Park in Vernon. Later the club held its show on their own grounds on Buchanan Road in Coldstream, then as the show grew and rigs got bigger, they moved the show for a few years to Lumby and finally found a home for it in Lavington where it has been held since about 2002.
