The Estrela Mountain Dog Club (UK) was formed to promote and protect the Estrela Mountain Dog and to give a forum for owners and friends of the breed to share their knowledge and experience.

New members are always welcome and it is the intention of the Club to hold social events to allow Estrela interaction with friends old and new.

This is not a Kennel Club registered Club at this time but we hope to apply for registration in the future.  This Club does uphold all Kennel Club principles.

Our inaugural meeting was held on 20 March 2011 and was a great success.  The meeting was mixed with lunch and a social ‘get together’ for dogs and their owners. There were 66 founder members with a full committee of 10.
