* To the New Breeders
The new applicants to the Swedish Vallhund Club who wish to breed a Swedish Vallhund bitch, please remember that you are require first to register your kennel with the N.Z.K.C. This also applies to those upgrading membership to breeder membership. All breeders are reminded that you are required to abide by the rules and regulations of the N.Z.K.C.

We have a small number of dogs that need rehoming coming up from time to time in New Zealand. We invite people interested in a re homed dog to make contact with the club. We work with other professional rescue and re homers and organisations. Dogs are screened by a qualified dog behaviorist to ensure they are a suitable candidate for the move to a new home. Where we are involved we provide back up support, and advice for the new owners.
* World Congress
Please read the latest UPDATE from Anita Whitmarsh for people attending World Congress 2011. Plans and details are coming together well for what is shaping up to be an exciting event in Sweden. Congress is NOT just for breeders and judges. The invite to attend extends to every Swedish Vallhund enthusiast.
