Getting Involved in Leos

You can start small and get BIG!

Leos can be your ticket to all sorts of hobbies. From conformation showing to athletic competitions to traditional dog activities such as cart pulling, barn hunting, and coursing, Leos can be your ticket to all sorts of fun activities. They also fit well into outdoor hobbies like hiking, geocaching, and reading books by the lake.

To get more formally involved, we recommend joining a club or two. The Townsends are members of the Alamance Kennel Club, Carolina Working Group Association, Leonberger Club of America, Mid-Atlantic Leonberger Club of Virginia, and the Tarheel Leonberger Club. 

Join the Club!
