The Club provides 3 major services –

  • a 3-day all-breeds championship dog show, in July.
  • a diary of dog shows conducted throughout northeastern New South Wales by kennel clubs and agricultural and horticultural societies. The diary is a key resource for dog exhibiters in southern Queensland and northern New South Wales. It comes out twice a year (for events from January to June, and July to December), with updates posted here.
  • puppy/show training, with informal show training provided; and table examination, walking and standing — for experienced and inexperienced handlers and their dogs — for the benefit of puppies (must be over 12 weeks and fully vaccinated) and older dogs. This is a great way to socialize our dogs. On Tuesdays at 11am at Murwillumbah Showground (on the main dog ring); also available, by appointment only, on Saturdays at 11am

All activities are undertaken on a voluntary and unpaid basis. New volunteers are always welcome and appreciated.

Jannaffer Lee

On 9 September 2016 our Northern Regions Coastal and Inland Regionís Dogs NSW Director, Jann Lee, passed away. Jann was arguably one of the staunchest advocates for the canine community. She was passionate about the welfare and care of dogs in all fields of dog promotion. She was especially proud of being on the Board of Directors thus enabling her to be of help to the members who required assistance from her. It was indeed rare to attend a dog show in either region and not see Jann working in some capacity. She made herself available wherever she might be needed by the committees concerned in the running of shows. Jann enjoyed every part of it from the setting-up, writing, stewarding, trophy-delivering, even the packing-up. On a personal level I found Jann to be a straight-talking, honest, fair, level-headed and forgiving person who held no grudges, and a very special friend. We extend our sincere sympathies to her husband Allen who cared so well for her during her illness, her children, their partners, grandchildren, her extended family and friends. Always in our hearts. — Virginia Brown
