Mastiff Club of America Members’ Education Program

2009-2010

The Constitution of the Mastiff Club of America requires Continuing Education
as one of the objectives of the club (Section 2.e.) and our MCOA Members’ Education
Program is one facet of our Continuing Education.

It is the goal of the MCOA Members’ Education Program to provide to MCOA members a comprehensive education program at the National Specialty, Regional Specialties and Regional Mastiff Club Supported Entries. 

These programs include:

1) an in depth presentation of correct structure and movement

2) an intensive study of the mastiff breed standard.

“The Mastiff Standard; a Breeder’s Perspective” uses the same materials and MCOA approved presenters as in the MCOA Judges Education Program; except that we approach the standard from a breeder/exhibitor standpoint instead of a judge’s standpoint. We feel these two programs should be presented together, since the serious breeder must understand correct structure and movement before he can truly understand our standard. 

These two programs are offered at the National Specialty in odd numbered years and at selected Regional events.  Other Member Education Programs offered at the National Specialty include mastiff handling clinics at the beginner and advanced levels, reproduction seminars given by canine reproduction veterinary specialists and seminars on other topics of interest to the serious mastiff fancier. 

All Members’ Education seminars are offered at no charge to MCOA members and associate members.  Attendance at some seminars is restricted to MCOA members only, in a few cases, non members may attend for a fee.  Check the Premium List for dates, times and fees.
