For many years - till 1986 - the Swiss Sighthounds and its breeders were united in a Swiss Sighthound Club, when Swiss sighthound owners/breeders of all sighthound
breeds felt like rearranging anew in single breed clubs. Same aimed the Afghan owners/breeders for.
Today's Swiss Afghan Hound Club has been founded in May 1986 and became a full member of the Swiss Kennel Club SKG. Its main concern belongs to the pure breeding of the Afghan Hound according to the FCI standard. The Swiss Afghan Hound Club also promotes the appropriate keeping of the Afghan Hound and the typical sighthounds sports such as coursing and racing. Also a yearly Club Winner Show belongs to its activities.
The Swiss Afghan Hound Club is supervising its breeders, is organising the education of new Afghan Hound show judges - both according to the regulations of the Swiss Kennel Club and its own additional requirements. It is involved as well in assisting Swiss breeders to find appropriate forever homes for their puppies as in rescue work of Afghans living in Switzerland. Whoever is in need of help is welcomed to ask it from us - for the sake of the Afghan Hounds.
