About Us

Who We Are

 

londons-scottie-club-180Launched in March 2016 as a Meet Up social group, London Scottie Club was the idea of journalist and social media consultant George Matlock. "The breeder from where our two Scotties came normally has 6 people on the waiting list for Scotties. That jumped to 36 after the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014 and mushroomed to 150 after the 2015 Crufts win by "Knopa" the Scottie. A thrilling resurgence of this rare breed, but frankly I grew a bit anxious they continue to go to happy homes. That's where the Club comes in," George says.

Our Values

1.

Professionalism

To work with professionals, students, media and the general public to defend the good reputation of Scottish Terriers, as well as foster cooperative relations with Scottie organisations outside of our geographical jurisdiction.
2.

Support

To provide mutual support to our members, exchange information, tips and ideas, and provide a social hub for owners and their dogs to meet regularly.
3.

Benefits

To work with commerce to ensure benefits return to our members the more our Club membership expands.
4.

About the breed

To discover more about the breed as our membership grows, so that we can plot a graph of where our members are in the London metropolis and ensure that through such discovery we can ensure the benefits of our Club reach them.
5.

Best of show

To impress upon pet owners the benefits of adopting show dog exhibitor qualities - only where those qualities benefit the well-being of the dog. Hence, taking the best of show.

Our Mission

To recognise, celebrate and promote best practices for keeping Scottish Terrier Dogs, to mutually support our members, and make the general public aware of  this complicated, special and rare breed.
