A large proportion of the membership comes from the UK and Ireland. However, we have many Overseas members and welcome applications. Note also that we operate an Associate scheme with a growing number of nations. If you are not from the UK or Ireland please check whether we have a Associate Club that you may join.
Local sheepdog societies may join as Affiliate Members and receive slightly different benefits. The principle benefit for those from UK territory is the ability to come under the ISDS insurance scheme. Please telephone the office if you would like more details.
