Welcome to the Pekingese Club of America
The Pekingese is a well-balanced, compact dog of Chinese origin with a heavy front and lighter hindquarters. Its temperament is one of directness, independence and individuality. Its image is lion-like, implying courage, dignity, boldness and self-esteem rather than daintiness or delicacy.
Our members are dedicated to the responsible breeding and ownership of the Pekingese. We advance and protect the interests of the breed through education, research, and events.
The Members Of The Pekingese Club of America recognize:
- Our responsibility to preserve and protect the breed.
- The need to provide guidance and education of judges, breeders and the public for the betterment of the Pekingese breed.
- The need to conduct sanctioned and licensed Specialty Shows under the rules of the American Kennel Club.
- The fate, integrity, quality, reputation and future of the Pekingese is the responsibility of the members of our club, as owners, exhibitors and breeders.
We welcome you to join a special community, where you can develop friendships with those that proudly share your passion for the breed.
