    Default Why Join Dog Clubs?

    What would be a reason you join a dogs club?

    As in my case. "The British Bulldog association of NSW"

    I am thinking I would get to meet other local Bully owners and talk Bully basically. Share stories, get info from more experienced owners etc

    Is it more of a show/ breeders type of thing or do pet owners join too?

    My reason is for the social events.

    It is usually only people who want to show or do agility, fly ball etc but pet owners can join too. You probably wouldn't get much out of it as a pet owner unless the breed club has social events such as monthly meets ups etc. But you are contributing a donation to the club to keep it running with your membership fee.

    I am a member of the Toy Dog Club and we have a yearly luncheon and several times a year we have a specialty show just for the toy breeds.
    On mainland Aus clubs usually have a lot more social gatherings than down here.

    I hope that club has meet ups, they are a lot of fun. Just a bunch of Bully lovers in the one place having a catch up.

    Would you be interested in doing any sort of dog sports with him?

    *her sorry!

    You can do any sport you like, it doesn't have to be directly involved with the club.

    I have done agility with mine just for fun, not in any competitions, the dogs loved it.
    You can set up a course in your backyard just for practice and if you decide you are both having fun you can go more competitive.

    I'm in an obedience and agility dog club.

    It's social for me and the dog and I have also joined SACA with a view to competing.

    We have a fun class for graduates of grade 5 (reliable off lead stay and recall - sort of). We did heel work to music basic moves last week. And there's a mock agility trial tonight - provided we don't get blown into orbit.

    Agility allows any breed or mix. It's only conformation showing where you have to have a pedigree dog.

    Mixes still have to be registered and owners have to pay fees like all other members.
