Aims & Rules of the Club & Show Rules

AIMS

  • Promotion of that owning a crossbreed or mongrel is something to be proud of and that they are not inferior to pedigree dogs nor superior but equally loving, fun to own, useful canines in their own right.
  • A social group to make new friends in your area and nationally with similar interests.
  • Promotion of responsible ownership.
  • To encourage junior members (16 and under) to take part in club activities and promotion of dog welfare.
  • Advice and encouragement to members and those thinking of getting a crossbreed or mongrel, especially a rescued dog that might prove difficult in training or socialisation.
  • Development of our own type of local dog shows restricted to crossbreeds and mongrels only, with a national show once a year.
  • Fundraising for small local dog rescue charities.
  • To gather voluntary information on members dogs for use as a reference service available to all members.
