About the Club

The Boston Terrier Club Inc

Affiliated to Dogs NZ (formerly know as the New Zealand Kennel Club)

The Boston Terrier Club Inc was founded in 1973 and became incorporated in 1995. Up to 1973 a dedicated group of Boston owners met on a regular informal basis to promote the Boston Terrier. A newsletter was produced which in 1974 formally became the club magazine The Chit Chat which is produced quarterly and is eagerly awaited by club members.

At January 2017 club membership stood at 81 with 11 members from overseas.

The Club holds a Championship Show every 2 years in Auckland where the main membership lies. Judges for the show are usually from overseas and though this is a major expense for the club fund raising has always meant a show comes out debt free.

Every February a Fun Day is held in Christchurch in the South Island and this has become a major event with members traveling hundreds of kilometers to attend to enjoy the comradeship of the club and the fun of being with perhaps 17-20 other Boston Terriers.
