What is a Breed Council?
The Dachshund Breed Council was set up to be a united voice for the Dachshund Breed in the UK.
It is a Kennel Club registered organisation and as such has to comply with the Kennel Club rules and regulations for Breed Councils. There are no individual members of a Breed Council, its members are the 19 Dachshund Breed Clubs who all pay a membership subscription to finance the running of the Breed Council. Membership is open to all registered Breed Clubs for the breed.
The Breed Council has to submit Annual Returns to The Kennel Club, just as its member clubs do, and hold an AGM.
Any items to be discussed at Breed Council meetings have to be proposed by a member club or The Kennel Club.
