Join Our Club

Membership application (sponsorship required)

We would like to invite anyone interested in our wonderful breed, the Irish Wolfhound, to consider joining the Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club. We are delighted to meet new members. 

If you are interested, come join us at any of our activities. You don’t need to own an Irish Wolfhound to be an NCIWC member--just have a love of the breed. We encourage all members to participate in as many activites as they would like, including, but not limited to, helping at club activities, organizing one of their own, or just joining in on the fun. 

We require sponsorship to apply for membership.  Come to any club activity as we would love to meet you.  At the activities you attend, there will be club member(s) who will sponsor your application.  Or contact the membership chair.
