Types of Membership & Dues

The Colonial Bloodhound Club (CBC) welcomes you to join our Club. While most of our members live and love their bloodhounds in the Northeastern geography of our great country, membership is not restricted to this geography. We welcome anyone interested in learning more about all things bloodhound.

There are three types of membership

  • Individual
  • Family
  • Junior - Persons under 18 years of age qualify for junior membership. Junior members shall enjoy all the privileges of membership except for eligibility to vote or hold office

Members must be in good standing with the American Kennel Club and the American Bloodhound Club and subscribe to the Colonial Bloodhound Club's Constitution and By-Laws. All applications require two sponsor signatures who are Colonial Bloodhound Club members. Applications will be submitted to the Membership Chairperson and will include payment of one year's dues.

The process will include the names of all new applicants to be published via email to the general CBC membership. After 30 days the CBC Board will vote on the applications. An application will be consider elected if a majority of the CBC Board casts votes of approval. The Membership Chairperson will notify each applicant in writing of the approval.


Dues are reviewed annually. The current Colonial Bloodhound Club dues are as follows:

$ 20.00 Individual
$ 25.00 Family
$ 5.00 Junior

Membership renewal dues are paid annually, on or before the first day of October. Membership will lapse if dues are delinquent for more than 60 days following the first day of October. Requests for extension will be directed to the Board of Directors for consideration.

As a reminder, the Club Treasurer will send a dues statement to each member during the month of August for the ensuing year. Members who join after the first day of April will be credited with full payment of dues for the following year regardless of any pending increase for the following year.

For your convenience a PayPal option to pay your dues is available on this sites "members only" section. Dues paid through PayPal will be slightly higher to cover the cost incurred for these transactions.

Our Happy Dogs!
