The Borzoi Club of Queensland Inc

About the Club ...

A Brief History of the Club

The foundation of the Borzoi Club of Queensland commenced in 1973 with a group of enthusiasts who formed the Windhound Association. This developed into the Borzoi and Saluki Club in 1976, to gain recognition, support and improvements for the breeds.

To obtain affiliation, the Borzoi fanciers reformed as a single breed club in 1978 and increased numbers in the show ring to average about 35 entries at the main Championship Shows. Affiliation was granted in January 1980.

The Club’s first Parade was held in the same year and the first Championship Show was judged by Mr Jack Houston, with an entry of 78 Borzoi. The Club became the Borzoi Club of Queensland Incorporated in 1988, and holds one Open and One Championship Show each year.

In 2004 the Borzoi Club of Queensland hosted the 3rd National Borzoi Show with specialist Judges Dr James Sillers (USA), Mrs Moya Joslin (NZ) and Mr Jack Houston AM (Qld).

2010 saw the 30th Anniversary of the Club's Affiliation and it's hosting of the 6th National Borzoi Show.
