NZKC - Clubs Profile

The South Island Beagle Club


The South Island Beagle Club Image The South Island Beagle club was formed to foster the love, understanding, betterment and knowledge of the Beagle breed, at all levels, from showing to pet beagles, from trained MAF Biosecurity dogs to obedience and agility dogs.

Our club was at first a sub-branch of The Beagle Club with headquarters in Wellington and began operating in 1975.

However, in 1992 it was decided that there was enough local support for the formation of a fully NZKC Affiliated Club, this was called the South Island Beagle Club with a zone of influence to include the whole of the South Island. Since then the club has continued to flourish and currently has a membership of 66.

A wide vareity of activities are provided. (See below). As well, the Club will attend and participate at Pet Expo's,(when held), and will undertake training for interested persons prior to our championship shows.

A club magazine is published quarterly. Contributions are welcome and gratefully received by the magazine editor (contact details as per the Club Secretary). This magazine contains details of upcoming events including Field meet dates, show results, photo competitions, a question & answer forum, general items of interest and helpful hints as well as profiling South Island breeders.

If you need to know more about the breed, have a problem you wish to discuss or need to know anything at all about the Beagle, please contact one of the listed Committe Members.
