shall be open to all persons seventeen (17) years of age or
older or families who are in good standing with The American Kennel Club
and who subscribe to the purposes and objectives of this club.
While membership is not restricted as to residence, the Club's
primary purpose is to be representative of breeders and exhibitors
in the Greater Pensacola area (including the Florida Panhandle
and Southwest Alabama).
to Apply for PDFA Membership?
Applications for membership
are available at Club Meetings (and most Club Events) and
must be requested in person. PDFA asks that anyone requesting membership considers
their ability to make the meetings in order that we maintain
quorums at the meetings. We do offer associate membership for those who can't make meetings. To hold successful events, members as well as volunteers are necessary to put it on.
Once completed, including
endorsement signatures from two PDFA Members in good standing,
the application for membership along with annual dues shall
be filed by the applicant with the Membership Chair.
Each application will
be read at the first meeting following its receipt and at
the next meeting applicant attends, where applicant's membership is voted upon.
Why Apply for PDFA
to an association that shares common interests and goals can
lead to long-lasting friendships and accomplishments. One
person can't set up a trial, but a group of people can! An
all breed club has a combined knowledge spanning decades
in training, reproduction, health, showing, and events to
share with one another. These contacts often become essential
to providing the best care for your dogs and certainly help
guide others to information. Jobs in the clubs are good learning
experiences that often play out in other parts of one's life.
Programs and seminars are put on through the combined effort
and interests of members with the backing of the club.
Join us at our meetings or events
and see if we don't have something we can share with you!
people call us looking for outlets to locate a certain breed.
Information on finding a breeder can be found here
and all breed shows can be a good starting place to learn
about the different breeds. Most national breed clubs will
send information or have good info on their web sites. Do
a search for the national club or find a listing at akc.org.
