The Atlantic Terrier Association was formed in 1976 with Donald Drury as its first President. It was formed, as its name implies, to promote all breeds in the Terrier Group in Atlantic Canada through Specialty shows, Booster Shows, Obedience Trials, Sanction Matches, Seminars and Educational Speakers. Fun events for the members and their dogs include Walks, Fun Matches, Terrier Trials, Pot Luck Suppers, BBQs and Auctions.
The Atlantic Terrier Association welcomes all owners, fanciers and exhibitors of Terriers to join in and participate in the activities. The Club meets once a month at the home of one of our members with business, an educational period, discussions and snacks. Anyone interested can contact members of the Club at Shows or at our homes.
