If you’re looking into starting up a dog club there are a few basics that can help you get it off the ground.
You may already have a specific dog breed that you favor, or you’re knowledgeable about. In this case this is likely to be the focus of your dog club. While it is normal for dog clubs to focus on one breed there are also many that are open to all breeds. These are often geared towards general dog lovers and don’t have a specific preference over one particular type.
Next, you’ll want to decide on the purpose of your dog club. Usually this is to bring like minded individuals together so they can share their dog experiences. For those who start a dog club website, it often becomes a place where people come together and make comments and share stories.
If you are going to make your dog club known online then you will need to know how to set up and maintain a website. You may find this a little time consuming but it’s a great way to promote your club.
At the same time, it’s not uncommon for members of a dog club to want to hold events and meet up to show off their pets. As the owner of the dog club it is up to you to set the mandate for your club. You may have to set some rules and these should be done right from the start.
As time progresses you should see that your dog club begins to grow in its membership. You will need to decide whether you are going to charge for a paid membership or lease this as a free offering. Most often dog clubs are started merely for interest groups although some individuals want to turn this into a business that will turn a profit. These are some of the decisions you are going to have to make as you start your new adventure with your dog club.
