About Western Afghan Hound Club

 

Western Afghan Hound Club was formed in 1968 and provides afghan enthusiasts the opportunity to exhibit their hounds at two annual Open Shows and a Championship Show.

 

The aims and objectives of the Club are to promote interest in the Afghan Hound and to maintain its future in the UK. We aim to promote breed classes within the region and can provide judges or rosette sponsorship to societies that use judges from our lists. Our judging criteria and application forms can be downloaded from the Downloads secton to your left.

 

 

We hold various social events, seminars and provide our members with a glossy magazine titled AFFI.

Club members:

 

Will properly house, feed, water and exercise all dogs under their care and arrange for appropriate veterinary attention if and when required.

 

Will agree without reservation that any veterinary surgeon who performs an operation on any of their dogs which alters the natural conformation of the animal, or who carries out a caesarean section on a bitch may report such operatiions to the Kennel Club.

 

Will adopt a responsible approach to breeding and general care of the breed.

 

Will agree that no healthy puppy will be culled. Puppies which may not conform to the Breed Standard should be placed in suitable homes.

Will not create demand for, nor supply, puppies that have been docked illegally.

 

Will agree not to breed from a dog or bitch which could be in any way harmful to the dog or  to the breed.

 

Will not allow any of their dogs to roam at large or to cause a nuisance to neighbours or those carrying out official duties.

 

Will ensure that their dogs wear properly tagged collars and will be kept leashed or under effective control when away from home.

 

Will clean up after their dogs in public places or anywhere their dogs are being exhibited.

 

Will only sell dogs where there is a reasonable expectation of a happy and healthy life and will help with the re-homing of a dog if the initial circumstances change.

 

Will supply written details of all dietary requirements and give guidance concerning responsible ownership when placing dogs in a new home.

 

Will ensure that all relevant Kennel Club documents are provided to the new owner when selling or transferring a dog, and will agree, in writing, to forward any relevant documents at the earliest opportunity, if not immediately available.

 

Will not sell any dog to commercial dog wholesalers, retail pet dealers or directly or indirectly allow dogs to be given as a prize or donation in a competition of any kind.  Will not sell by sale or auction Kennel Club registration certificates as stand alone items (not accompanying a dog).

 

Will not knowingly misrepresent the characteristics of the breed nor falsely advertise dogs nor mislead any person regarding the health or quality of a dog.

 

Will not misrepresent the Club or the Breed on Social Media.

 

Members will when breeding dogs, adopt as a minimum standard, the principles, requirements and recommendations as embodied in the Kennel Club's Assured Breeder Scheme. It is strongly recommended that Members who breed should apply to join the scheme.
