The Garden State Norwegian Elkhound Club is a Regional club of the Norwegian Elkhound Association of America. Our members are involved in one or more various activities within our breed; agility, conformation, obedience, rescue, etc. and yet we all come together to support one another wanting only the best for the Norwegian Elkhound breed. Our members come from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut although we have a number of members who are much farther away. Club origins go back to 1966, with our first Specialty being held in May of 1969, at the Bucks County Kennel Club Show in Erwinna, PA. The Club recently celebrated our 50th Anniversary with a pair of Independent Specialty Shows at the Somerset Kennel Club Show in September of 2019.
