Traditional club membership is open to all who have an
interest in promoting the Shetland sheepdog breed. We encourage conformation and performance exhibitors, breeders, and pet owners.
Prospective members must attend two club meetings and submit an application for membership. Active members are eligible to vote and receive club awards.
Associate membership is for those who want to be involved
in the club but are not able to attend meetings regularly, for instance those members who live outside the immediate Richmond area.
Associate members benefit from reduced dues and no commitment to attend meetings. Associate members do not vote and are not eligible for club awards.
Honorary members are elected by the active membership
based on service or outstanding contributions to the club.
