Just like you, I’m passionate about purebred dogs.  What’s more, I’m particularly proud of our Club’s many programs and initiatives that are dedicated to advancing the interests of purebred dogs, their owners and their breeders in Canada. 

While doing some spring-cleaning earlier this year, FullSizeRender-2.jpgI came across some CKC obedience certificates and ribbons in the basement dated in the ‘1970’s.  It made me realize that CKC had a presence in my household for longer than I was aware and before I ever imagined working here.  After more than thirty years with Irish wolfhounds, I tend to still display a bias for the breed but I’ve since been tempted by all of the wonderful breeds I’ve been exposed to through the CKC.        
 I’ve decided to launch a new blog that will take you behind my desk for an insider’s view on some of the issues before our organization.   I hope that you will be interested in a behind-the-scenes perspective on my responsibilities as the chief administrator and facilitator of the myriad of processes and decisions
here at CKC.

There really isn’t a better way to stay in the loop with all things CKC related!

Awesome idea. Point of interest . How are or are there still talks going on about CKC acknowledging Therapy Canine as AKC does.

Has the Board considered ways to increase membership not only in the national club but at the local level as well. Would be interested in hearing from the national club on how to address this issue
