Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club

NCIWC is dedicated to promoting the continued well being and preservation of  Irish Wolfhounds by example and education. NCIWC  sponsors many activities for this purpose. The activities range from specialties and matches to beach walks and public events, such as Celtic festivals and parades.

Board meetings are held four times per year. An annual general membership meeting is held in June each year.  Members and guests are invited to attend; however, only board members may vote on business.


The 41st and 42nd specialty shows, obedience, rally and lure trials and heart clinic held on October 1, 2 and 3 were very successful.  Congratulations to all the competitors and winners!  Thank you to our judges!  Official win photos will be posted when available, so check back.  Scroll down to see All-Star Hound winner!
