in Adelaide, the Samoyed Club is dedicated to promoting the breed, supporting
members, providing advice and disseminating information about events
and issues of interest.
We hold a Championship breed specialty show and a nationally-accredited
open sled dog race each year, and support members involved in a range
of activities including:
Sled Dog Racing
club is affiliated with the SA Canine Assoc. and maintains close links
with other like-minded clubs and organisations such as the Siberian
Husky & Alaskan Malamute Club, the SA Sled Dog Club and the Wild Dog
While the club has no "formal" rescue program, we have been successful
on a number of occasions in finding new homes for Samoyeds in need.
Fortunately, the need doesn't arise too often, but if you would be
interested in re-homing an older dog at some time in the future, please
register with the club secretary.
The club routinely participates in promotional events such as
Animal Expos and other exhibitions - any opportunity to educate the
public on all aspects of owning a Samoyed.
We have produced 3 brochures covering (1) the breed, (2) sled dog
sports and (3) herding which can be downloaded as pdf files:
Following a number of years of little activity due to
falling numbers, the club has seen a resurgence in both
membership and enthusiasm. The new committee is endeavouring
to restart a program of social, sporting and competitive
events. It won't happen overnight, but please bear with us
while we get our act together .... or better still, join us!
The club's Annual General Meeting was held on Monday,
7th November, 2016, and a
new committee was elected.
