About our Club

The Yorkshire Bull Terrier Club was founded in August 1946 and the inaugural President was Dr Howard Wilcox, the Chairman Mr F Bennett and the Hon Secretary Mr J Clough. The total membership was thirty one and the annual subscription was ten shillings.

The application of title to the Kennel Club was made on the 25th August 1946, with the first show, a 12 class Sanction Show held in St James Church Schoolroom at Huddersfield. The Club's first Open Show was held in 1948 and the first Championship Show in 1973.
