What is the Club all about?

The Beagle Club of NSW (Australia) was formed in 1964 and membership is open to everyone interested in the promotion and welfare of beagles and who generally just have a love for this wonderful breed.

The Club is for anyone who loves beagles, of course its great if you do already own a beagle but it isn't essential. We have activities for pet owners and exhibitors alike and we look forward to welcoming you as a member. The cost for membership is $25 for a year which runs from 1st July to 30th June (If you apply after the December meeting and before the April meeting, the cost is $15) which includes all members of the family and our bi-monthly magazine, called "Harking In" which is sent to all members giving all the latest information on Club activities and the world of beagles. You will find a Membership Application form on the next page.

General Meetings are held bi-monthly on the second Tuesday of the month in February, April, June, August, October and December at 7.30 pm in the Secretary's Rooms (near the Dog Rings, Castle Hill Showground, Carrington Road, Castle Hill (click here for a map). You are more than welcome to come along and help make important decisions for your Club.

A Sniffing Around Sydney WalkSome of our activities include Sniffing Around Sydney Walks, Snoopy Fun Days, Basic Obedience Training, a Christmas in July weekend at Cootamundra (held in conjunction with Field Days for the beagles) and two Championship Beagle Shows.

If you enjoy spending time with your beagle and meeting other beagle owners then I am sure there would be an activity you could enjoy. You can find out more about the Club's activities by using the Fun Activities link on the left hand side menu.

We are also happy to help if you are having problems with your beagle whether behavioural or health related. A number of our members have been associated with beagles for many years and in most cases they will be able to offer advice. If they are unable to help, then they may be able to put you in touch with someone who can. Please have a look at the Contact Details to see which of our Committee members will be right for your particular problem.

The Club also has a Rescue and Rehoming Service where we assist beagle owners to find a home for beagles that they can no longer keep. This has proven to be very successful over the past few years that it has been available. If you are looking for an older beagle then the Club may have one available that will be just right for you.

We would love to welcome you, your family and your beagle(s) as members of the Club.
