Club Publications

An important Club function is the publication of the Newsletter, which is furnished to members without charge, and which is available to non-members on a subscription basis. The Newsletter features articles of both current and long-term interest, pictures of new member-owned titleholders, and regular sections devoted to show, obedience, and racing news. Non-members may obtain a one-year subscription (4 issues) by mailing a check for $35.00 ($75.00 in U.S. funds for overseas subscriptions), payable to the SHCA, Inc., to the Circulation Manager:

Sandy Jessop
SHCA Newsletter Circulation Manager
7850 Friendship Road
Lenoir City, TN 87772

The Club also publishes an Annual Directory, which includes dogs that have completed championships, obedience titles, or Sled Dog degrees during the year. In addition, the Annual Directory lists SHCA members, officers and board members, winners of SHCA Specialty Shows, and includes other statistics of permanent interest.

A Referral Directory is published annually, listing by states, the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of members who have puppies or dogs for sale, or who offer stud service or boarding facilities. An online copy of the Referral Directory is available on this site.

A complete price list and order form for all currently available material appear on this site.
