Bay Area Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club (BACKCSC) held its first meeting in March, 1995--shortly after the American Kennel Club recognized the breed. In 1995 and 1996, the BACKCSC helped theAmerican Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club (the AKC parent club for Cavaliers) hold matches and judges' seminars. These events helped lead to the approval of the ACKCSC as an AKC licensed show giving club. Then, in 2002, the BACKCSC successfully achieved it's own licensed status with the AKC.
INTRODUCTION to the BACKCSC
Since 1995, the BACKCSC has grown to over 80 members, including pet owners, breeders, and exhibitors in both conformation and obedience. We hold 8 General Meetings a year followed by a presentation geared toward all aspects of life with a Cavalier including general care, training, health issues, showing, and breeding. Members' camaraderie is also important! Many of our meetings are held at dog friendly sites, so well-behaved Cavaliers are able to attend.
In addition to regular meetings, annually we hold a Fun Day, a Health Clinic, and a Regional Specialty Show. A list of the year's planned activities is on the Events page. The Wag, the BACKCSC newsletter, is published quarterly. For further information, contact any of the officers or board members listed on the Contacts page. BACKCSC membership information can be found on our Membership page.
