Membership Application FAQs

When and where are the meetings?

On the Home Page of this website is a calendar with a list of upcoming events. Our next meeting is listed there. Our meetings are determined by the local dog show schedule. Because many members are actively showing dogs, they are often out of town at dogs shows. At the beginning of the year we determine meeting dates for the first 6-8 months and then in early Spring we determine meeting dates for the rest of the year. Currently the meetings are held either in a conference room of a member's business or at a member's house. We have two parties a year, a Summer BBQ and a Christmas party. to nfind out about meetings, check out the Calendar, it will list the Date, Time and Location of the meeting. We welcome guests and would love to have new people attend.

Do you have to show Great Danes to Join the club?

No! Many of our members are not showing Great Danes,  they have either never showed a Great Dane or have retired Great Danes at home and no Great Dane currently being shown. This is a Great Way to be involved with our beloved Great Danes without showing a Dane.
