Is Chief Solano Kennel Club
Right for You?
The advantages of belonging to an ‘all-breed’ dog club are numerous. On April 1, 2010 AKC® launched its new program called Canine Partners opening many companion events to mixed-breed dogs. Now nearly all dogs of every shape, size and mix can participate in many events. Even if you do not intend to participate in these AKC® events, just by belonging to a dog club you will gain a wealth of knowledge about our four legged friends.
As the saying goes, the more you give, the more you will receive. Every person interested in purebred or not so purebred dog activities can give to our club.
If you have experience in the sport of showing dogs, the willingness to share your knowledge and to help the novice exhibitor, you will be a great asset.
Would you like to be informed ‘before the fact’ of pending legislation, as related to dogs, at all levels of government, local, county, state and federal, and have a part in determining the outcome?
Would you like to become familiar with breeds other than your own and appreciate it for its own merits?
Would you like to keep abreast of changes in AKC® rules and regulations?
You will have the opportunity to learn many of the intricacies of breeding, exhibiting, training, grooming, nutrition, and dog care from other fanciers.
You will also learn the various ‘behind the scene’ activities necessary for a well-run show and match, thus making you a more tolerant and perhaps a better exhibitor.
If you are a novice in the ‘fancy’, you may still have a great deal to contribute to our club. Everyone has a talent that can be utilized for the good of the club. If you can write a letter, make a telephone call, drive a nail, use a paintbrush, bake a cake or keep a checkbook you can be a great asset to the club.
Most of all you will expand your circle of friends in our fluffy or not so fluffy four legged companions
Additionally, as we are all friends we will both give and receive the moral support of sincerely interested fellow members, be it at ringside, by the whelping box, in times of joy, sorrow or disappointment.
Once again, we welcome the public to join us at our meetings that are open to all those interested in the welfare of our canine friends. You are invited to join us on the first Thursday of each month to see what we do. There are no obligations!!
