Why Join an ALL Breed CLUB ?

If you are just getting your feet wet and need to learn the basics, your local all-breed kennel club is your go-to source for knowledge about the sport. Go online to find your nearest dog club, reach out to introduce yourself and you will be invited to attend the next meeting as a guest. Don’t worry that the members don’t own your breed; the knowledge of raising dogs, training them for competition and putting on shows transcends any one breed. If the club runs weekly handling classes, start dropping in with your puppy. You will learn how to handle your dog with confidence, and hear about upcoming shows and seminars. You will also make many friends and find a mentor to guide you. In the early days, having some friendly faces at ringside rooting for you unconditionally, as well as offering some useful handling tips, is so important.

Established breeder-exhibitors are the lifeblood of any club. Your willingness to teach a session of handling classes or take a newbie under your wing will help the club prosper and the sport to carry on. No doubt a local club contributed to your dog knowledge as you were coming up through the ranks, so it’s important to pay it forward and help the club continue to sustain itself.
