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.

Update September 24, 2023:

We held our Annual Fun Match on September 23 – in the rain! The nice thing about rain is that it eventually stops, and we did get a few breaks during the day. The dogs loved it as they got to prance around the conformation ring and the parade, and run after a squawk box in a lure coursing practice. Pictures will be posted on our events tab.

Our CABT trial premium list is now available for our event in Webster, NH on November 11 and 12. We are also offering an opportunity to participate in the AKC Fit Dog program for those looking to just get out with your dog!! Both events are open to all breeds. Check out the AKC website, Infodog, and our events tab for more information. Our premium list is below.

Dog Mountain will hold its annual fall Dog Party on October 7 in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. There will be live music, food, and contests. This event is free and open to everyone. Maybe you’ll see a wolfhound or two! There are several planning to go!


Bill and Beth Wimsatt presented a check to Sarah, the Director of Development for the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk, Maine on behalf of IWANE on August 28, 2023. IWANE raised $1,300 from our “Fun Run” coursing event held in Gorham, Maine this summer. This is a proud moment for us to be able to give to this wonderful organization and we could not have done it without the help from club members and our extended family of helpers and coursing participants to make this happen.

We will be holding several other Fun Runs and hope to share the love with other animal welfare organizations.
