Chow Chow Breed Council


Back to homepage

The Chow Chow Breed Council is an association of all of the 9 UK Breed Clubs. It was registered with the Kennel Club in December 1993. The aims and objectives of the Breed Council are :
- To urge Breeders, Judges and Show Committees to accept the Breed Standard as the only standard of excellence for the breeding and judging of Chow Chows.
- The Council will encourage activities with the clubs, helping to create facilities for those seeking information to further their knowledge of the breed, and to maintain and promote the standard of excellence in the breed.
- To enable all member Chow Chow Clubs in the U.K. to speak with a united voice on all matters affecting the breed.
- To maintain judges lists and support the training and education of judges.
- To make recommendations to the Committee of the Kennel Club.
