The South Island Beagle Club

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 every three months. 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 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.

Club Scrapbook

Beagles are a "pack" dog. Until recent years they were most likely to be found in a hunting pack. Because of this, they are a very sociable breed who enjoy and need the company of other beagles, or other dog breeds and if kept as a single dog in your home, will need the company and time input of their owners.

The South Island Beagle Club usually holds a Fun Day in September. Usually held at the home of a club member, these are hugely successful and are an enjoyable way of meeting other beagle owners or even coming out to see what the breed is like.

A variety of fun activities are held including a very basic agility course. It is great seeing our little beagles excelling in this sort of activity and also seeing how quickly they sort out other problems put in their way during the course of the day. If you are interested in coming along to our next Fun Day please contact the Club Secretary (details found on the Club Profile page).
