Dog Breed Clubs
When you start talking about the cute way your Golden Retriever brings you the dog dishes do your friends hide? No one to talk to about the pros and cons of wire vs fiberglass crates? The best people for a dog enthusiast to talk to are other dog enthusiasts. There are lots of great dog clubs in Alberta.
Most dog clubs are affiliated with a parent club, the most common parent clubs are the Canadian Kennel Club and the United Kennel Club. There are also a couple of Australian Shepherd of America Club associated clubs. I have sorted the clubs I have found by what I believe their affiliation is. This list is constantly growing so if you do not see your breed right now, then check back in a while. If you know of a club which is not listed, e-mail Alberta Dogs with details and I will include it on the list
Dog clubs which are associated with particular activities can be found on the Dog Activities page.
