The Siberian Husky Club of the Twin Cities

The club was founded in 1972 and is made up of Siberian fanciers with a variety of interests in the breed: showing, racing, obedience training, and just plain loving our beautiful breed.

 

Select times and places for meetings are chosen the month or two before, so that as many members as possible are able to attend. Dates of regional shows, races and trials are taken into consideration. Meetings are usually held in and around the Twin Cities Metropolitan area.

 

Helpful programs or demonstrations of educational value are part of our meetings whenever possible. The Club puts on an annual Specialty Show in the spring, which is open to the public.

 

Clinics for eye exams are held annually to make it convenient and economical for members and non-members alike to have dogs eyes examined for hereditary eye disease.

 

The membership is open to owners and prospective owners of Siberian Huskies who agree to abide by the Club's Constitution, By-Laws, and Code of Ethics, and the rules of the American Kennel Club.

 

Club follows the Code of Ethics of the Siberian Husky Club of America; the National breed club. The Club is a member of the Minnesota Council of Dog Clubs.

Code of Ethics

 In order to promote the highest ideals among Siberian Husky owners and breeders and to aim for the continuous improvement of the breed within the framework of the American Kennel Club approved breed standard, I pledge that:

 

1. I will accept a high ethical standard of breeding

 

2. I will follow the rules of good sportsmanship in all Siberian Husky competition and activities.

 

3. I will fully explain to all prospective Siberian Husky purchasers the disadvantages as well as the advantages of owning a Siberian Husky.

 

4. I will attempt to help and befriend novice exhibitors, racers, and breeders.

 

5. I will keep well informed in the field of genetics and will work

persistently to eliminate hereditary defects from the breed.

 

6. I will, before entering any breeding agreement, carefully analyze the conformation and the pedigrees of the prospective sire and dam and, keeping the breed standard clearly in mind, refuse the mating if in my opinion it will not be in the best interest of the breed. If I deny stud service I will fully explain my reasons to the owner of the bitch.

 

7. I will refuse to deal with dog wholesalers or to sell puppies or

dogs to pet shops, and I will include in all stud contracts an

agreement to be signed by the owner of the bitch that no puppies resulting from the mating will be wholesaled or sold to pet shops.

 

8. I will not deal in wholesaling purebred Siberian Huskies in any manner.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SIBERIAN HUSKY BREED

The Siberian Husky was developed centuries ago by the Chukchis of Northern Siberia. The nomadic tribe used their dogs for many purposes; as a means of transportation, to assist in hunting their food, and as companions for their children. Siberians were first brought to Alaska in 1909 for racing, proving themselves as hardy dogs with speed and endurance.
