General Information About the Club

The Pomeranian Club of Canada was founded in 1979 as a non-profit organization. The Club is constituted under authority of the Canadian Kennel Club, and operated on the basis of the volunteer activities and contributions of its members. It is a national breed club whose area of operation is all of Canada, and whose purposes, as set out in the Constitution of the Pomeranian Club of Canada, are:

  • to encourage and promote the breeding of purebred Pomeranians and to do everything possible to bring to perfection their natural qualities and enduring health.

  • to urge members, breeders and judges to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the Canadian Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which the Pomeranian shall be judged.

  • to do everything in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed by encouragement of sportsman-like competition at dog shows, sanctioned matches, specialty shows, obedience matches and trials and special events.

  • to conduct dog shows, sanctioned matches, specialty shows and obedience trials under the rules of the Canadian Kennel Club and to support the entry of Pomeranians at such all-breed shows as the Club may determine.

  • To promote and, wherever possible, police a Code of Ethics which protects the Pomeranian by ensuring that members agree to abide by the Code of Ethics when joining the Club.

Membership in the Pomeranian Club of Canada offers many benefits to Pomeranian breeders as well as others that are interested in this breed. First and foremost, membership offers an excellent mechanism for getting, and staying, in touch with others who share your interest in this wonderful and delightful breed of dog. 


All members receive a complementary copy of the Club's Newsletter, Pomeranians in Canada. This is an excellent reference source, providing a wide range of breed specific information such as the recent series on grooming by Christine Heartz, the Club's President and international renowned breeder of Pomeranians. The Newsletter also provides reports on, and pictures of, the Club Specialty which can be especially useful in the (unlikely, we hope) event that you are unable to attend. For Club Members, Newsletter advertising rates are extremely competitive, as is listing your Kennel on the Breeder Referrals page of the Club's website.
