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. 

For those who attended our events throughout the year and to those who supported the club through participation in our sponsored shows and specialty, our FCAT and CAT trials, and purchases at our boutique and raffles we thank you immensely.

Updated February 10, 2024:

Our next member meeting is scheduled for April 13, 2024. It will be a virtual meeting. Information will be sent out prior.

We have a lot of interesting and exciting events planned for 2024 but before we jump into that please be reminded to send in your 2024 dues and a thank you to those who have already paid. Official reminders will be going out with follow ups to ensure everyone is accounted for this year. There was a push to get them in earlier this year as the trophies needed to be confirmed for the specialty. We appreciate everyone coming together on this one.

Our annual specialty is scheduled for June 9 and will be at the Showcase for Dogs in CT and will be a one-day show. However, there will be a Fun Run and Potluck lunch/member meeting on Saturday, June 8. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone!

Our Fast CAT events have been finalized and our first AKC event will be on May 18 and May 19 in Blandford, MA. We also have our dates confirmed for September and November with locations to be shared once confirmed.

We are also sponsoring a few St. Patrick’s Day parades this year.  If anyone is interested in walking with your hounds in the Boston (MA) parade or the Portland (ME) parade please feel free to contact the secretary and we’ll get you in touch with the coordinators.
