Nova Scotia Dog Clubs & Associations

Please Note: Breed specific clubs are listed under the Individual Breed sections of this website.

  • Canine Agility Assocation of Nova Scotia (CAANS)
  • Canine Association of Nova Scotia — Unique shows held under European-styled regulations – FCI…
    “What sets our shows apart from other canine competitions in the region? Since 2009, a handful of pioneers, dog show enthusiasts and dedicated workers have come together to provide the dog community and interested general public a chance to be introduced to many unique breeds, such as the Coton du Tulear (left), rarely seen outside the European show venues. Under the CANS system, each exhibit receives a written critique from International judges who are established as experienced and expert in their field and have judged around the world.”
  • Dartmouth Kennel Club — To encourage and develop purebred dogs by educating members and the public at large of the benefits of purebred dogs, hold dog shows and obedience trials for competition and the public interest, and work in co-operation with the Canadian Kennel Club.
  • Halifax Kennel Club — The Halifax Kennel Club pledges to promote and encourage the welfare of the purebred dog.
  • Maritime Group Seven Club — A group of great people having fun with their Herding Breed Dogs.
