The Canadian Eskimo Dog Club of Great Britain was formed in 2008. There are currently less than 50 registered Canadian Eskimo Dogs in the UK at the moment.
A small group of breeders, owners and enthusiasts got together to form a club for the Canadian Eskimo Dog in the UK.
The Club is still growing and at the moment we do not hold shows, or organise working events but we are hoping to organise them in the future when the breed numbers are higher.
At the moment there are several championship and open dog shows that have breed specific classes for the Canadian Eskimo Dog, the biggest of these being Crufts. There are also several working organisations in the UK where you can work your Canadian Eskimo Dog. These are listed under the working section of the links page of the website.
The Club aim to promote the breed in the UK and Europe, to encourage people to show and work their CED/CID's. To give people information, guidance and help with their CED/CID or to educate about the breed. These dogs are a very primitive, high energy dog more suited to people with an outdoor lifestyle or those wishing to work their dogs and should not be considered as a pet. In the future we hope to gain recognition with the FCI to make it possible to show in countries governed by the FCI. We already have the Irish Kennel Club accepting registrations for us so you can show there.
Membership is encouraged for everyone, even if you do not own a CED/CID. Members initially receive a welcome pack and then quarterly newsletters. Please forward any information, pictures, stories or results for the newsletter to Carol Atherton. (Contact details can be found on the commitee members page).
