Irish Wolfhound Association of New England

Thank you for your interest in the Irish Wolfhound Association of New England.  You are in the right place if you are looking to meet, learn, share, and widen your social circle around Irish Wolfhounds. 


Update – July 19, 2022

We have some exciting events planned for the second half of 2022.  Our committees have been busy putting the finishing touches on our annual Specialty and our Fast CAT/CAT events.  In addition, we are planning some instructional fun coursing events in the northern states area, as well as another Meet & Greet.

For our ANNUAL SPECIALTY, which will be held at the Showcase for Dogs in East Windsor, CT on September 18 & 19, we’ll be holding a cardiac screening sponsored by the Irish Wolfhound Foundation with Dr. William Tyrrell, DVM, DACVIM (Cardiology) that we are excited to offer to Irish Wolfhound owners.  Tests for IWANE members will be supported by a donation made by IWANE to the IWF.  Non-IWANE members can sign up on August 1 with a suggested donation outlined in the premium list.  Pre-registration is suggested prior to September 1.  Premium list is below and also on our Facebook page.

The IWANE Boutique will also be at the show site, and we’ll be offering our 2023 IWANE Calendar.  Calendars are $20.00 and need to be picked up at the show.  We will not be accepting advance orders, and we will not be shipping at this time.  We will be offering the calendars for purchase after the show; however, it will include shipping costs in the price so it’s a bargain if you are able to buy one (or two) at the show!! 

On November 12 & 13 we will be holding our Fast CAT and CAT events in Gorham, ME.  Once the premium list is ready, we will share it along with the link to JotForm for easier registration.  We are holding a fun event in central NH in August but are still working out the details at this time.  Please check back on our website or our Facebook page for more information. 

Also in the planning stages is our fall Meet & Greet.  We decided to have this in Vermont. What better place to enjoy the fall colors with our hounds than the Green Mountain State!  Again, check in on our Facebook page as we’ll have more information and faster information posted as soon as we get it scheduled!! 

You can always reach out to the IWANE secretary for more information on any of the events being planned.
