There are many tangible and intangible benefits to being a member of the FSCA. The first is a mutual bond with this exquisite breed that has remained pure; and has been a partner to humans for perhaps thousands of years;
Additional benefits include the following:
New Owners - Before becoming a member, you can receive up to 6 months of the "Finnish Line", the club newsletter. This helpful and informative newsletter is a free benefit of being a member of FSCA.
All Members -
Free monthly issue of the "Finnish Line", our club newsletter.
Contact with numerous breeders and members active in dog related activities such as breeding, showing, agility, training, and owners; some with decades of experience with Finnish Spitz.
Ability to share a passion for this breed with others who have a wealth of knowledge, understand the happy quirks common to the breed, and a chance to participate in fun or volunteer activities. I think it is fair to say that anyone who shares a love for this most unique breed has become a better, more satisfied person in their life.
Young breeders can find more experienced breeders, as mentors, willing to share their knowledge about breeding, raising, and "selling" this breed of dog.
Older breeders can find new, enthusiastic breeders eager to learn the "right" way to breed for quality, health and future welfare of the breed.
All breeders benefit with their collaborative efforts to produce sound, healthy Finnish Spitz pups and to find homes correctly suited to raise them to adulthood in good homes.
All breeders have the ability to be sent referrals from the breeder referral liaison, a service for member breeders in good standing only. Part of this service is also to assist breeders who take a dog back from an owner (even years later) to find a new loving and stable home for the dog.
Those who Show -
Those wanting a healthy Finnish Spitz with good temperament, and coming as close to perfection of standard as reasonably possible have responsible breeder members in the club who have wonderful working knowledge about the breed.
Those who show their dogs have a "brotherhood/sisterhood" to compete against as well as to cheer one another's dogs on to success
Those who participate in other activities -
Access to others who participate in the same or similar activities. Whether for help with training; hints on their particular sport; tips on grooming, traveling, judging; or simply friends who enjoy the same activities can gain much with contact with other club members with Finnish Spitz
Those who prefer to have companion only Finnish Spitz -
Every month in the "Finnish Line" newsletter there are tips from experts on health, training, food, activities etc. , all this from which any member can learn.
Access to other members with experience specific to the Finnish Spitz. Many questions can arise throughout the life of ones dog that may be specific to that dogs breed. Finnish Spitz are no different, especially in their training; from basic obedience to advanced and expert obedience, activities or "tricks".
A chance to learn of new activities and how to begin participation.
Opportunities to use ones skills in the multi-faceted club activities and operations. Most people who love these dogs are very giving, just like their generous dogs. Whether it is a skill of organization, design, product creation, writing, or "meet and greet" people, everyone has skills to share and shine.
