The Bulldog Club of Utah

We would like to introduce you to the Bulldog. That is the official registered name with the American Kennel Club. The Bulldog is NOT the French Bulldog, who is also registered with the American Kennel Club. It is NOT the American Bulldog, the Olde English Bulldog, the Victorian Bulldog, the Game American Bulldog, nor the Miniature Bulldog. It is also NOT a member of that group known as “Pit Bulldogs”. *

This is our Breed: a massive, gentle companion dog who is quiet, dignified, and intelligent. He is not quarrelsome, although when pushed, he is supremely courageous and knows no fear or defeat. While he adapts easily to his environment, he needs and demands affection which he repays with boundless devotion. He is not what is usually described as a “one man dog”. His big heart and loving nature will make room for anyone who shows him kindness.

Their needs are simple: good quality food, daily light exercise, plenty of fresh water, a warm place in the winter and a cool place in the summer.

 

The Bulldog Club of Utah is a non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement and protection of the breed in Utah by educating owners and the public about our dogs. The club urges members and breeders to accept the standard of the Bulldog
as approved by the American Kennel Club and the Bulldog Club of America, to practice responsible dog ownership, and to
recognize they are the stewards of our breed.

The Bulldog Club of Utah was actually established in 2002. However, the work had begun several years earlier when a
number of like minded individuals first got together in 1998 and began to discuss the idea of a Bulldog club in Utah.

In September of 2001, at the Beehive Cluster, the group held a luncheon and raffle to benefit Bulldog Rescue throughout
the state of Utah. They had a weekend retreat in the mountains for the dogs and their owners. By December 2001, there
was enough interest for the founders to contact the American Kennel Club and see what needed to be done to become a
licensed Specialty Club. Officers were selected and the long list of requirements was finally met in December 2005 when
the AKC granted the Bulldog Club of Utah license status.

Since its inception, the Bulldog Club of Utah has held 6 Specialty Shows, some public education programs, picnics, parties,
and costume parades. We hosted a Canine Good Citizen Test, took our dogs to long term care facilities and participated
in the first ever "Pet Expo" and showed the crowds what it's like to kiss a Bullie. We have a wealth of information about
Bulldogs to share: health concerns, training (or lack of it), support for both old and new owners.

What started out as a wish has become reality. We are the Bulldog Club of Utah.

We have add a new page on our Website called "In Memoriam" this is dedicated to the members of our family that leave us.
