People like to be members of clubs and share their interests with other likeminded people. There are clubs out there for just about everything under the sun. If you like to collect stamps, there is a stamp collectors club that meets in the capitol city twice a month and lets people from all over the state swap stamp collecting stories and browse the stamp collection’s of other stamp enthusiast. If your heart belongs to the world of bird watching, there are a number of clubs that you can join to meet other people who, like you, love to watch birds and compete to see how many different species they can catalog. The whole idea behind clubs is to give people with special interests an outlet for their passion and to share that passion with others like them. The same concept that is behind nearly all the clubs is also behind the National Australian Labradoodle Club or NAC.
The NAC has been around for nearly ten years in order to promote, educate and connect labradoodle breeders and owner together in a group of labradoodle lovers. This group started with only two breeders, one from Texas and Another in Oregon. The two breeders just wanted to create a link between themselves so that they could share breeder information about their dogs. Soon however, people who came to the breeders to purchase their Australian labradoodle puppies became interested in the idea of a link between all labraddodle owners and breeds. Just five years later the NAC was a real organization that had member all across the United States and Canada. People who own these dogs seem to have a special bond with everything from the labradoodle world. These dogs are popular and yet they remain somewhat rare, a fact which gave even more reason for people to want to connect with other owners.
The NAC does everything from share information about funny stories concerning their dogs, to discussing health issues that their animals might be having and trying to offer insight to other owners about possible solutions to different aliments the labradoodle is prone to having. No matter if the member is a long time owner or has just bought their first puppy, they can become member just based upon their love of the breed.
The NAC has several paper publications which discuss the latest news in the world of labradoodles. There are also online publications that show funny pictures of owners alongside their labradoodles or offer different products for owners and breeders. The group has recently been pushing for a convention to be organized this year in Las Vegas. A convention in Las Vegas would be a time for all labradoodle owners and breeders to come together and share in their passion. The idea of having breeders/owners conventions is nothing new; there are approximately 27 different dog breed conventions in the US every year. There are even already general dog breed conventions in which the labradoodle has already participated. It appears that soon the labradoodle will have its own platform to shine on.
