Founded in 1897, the French Bulldog Club of America (FBDCA) is the oldest club in the world dedicated to this wonderful breed. The club was created to encourage and promote quality in the breeding of purebred French Bulldogs and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection, and to promote the proper care of the breed. We want to help those people who are interested in all aspects of Frenchies: competing in conformation and performance events, breeding, judging, and just owning and loving their dogs.
The FBDCA is a 501(c)(7) not-for-profit organization. The club is led by a volunteer board that consists of four officers, four directors and an AKC Delegate. The club also consists of nine committees, a historian, a legislative liaison, and an annual National Specialty Show chair.
Membership is open to French Bulldog breeders, owners, and enthusiasts, who are in good standing with the American Kennel Club and who subscribe to the purposes of this club.
