The Samoyed Club is a small specialist dog breed club associated with the New Zealand Kennel Club (NZKC) now branded as Dogs New Zealand (Dogs NZ). The main focus of the club is the promotion and protection of the Samoyed.
The Samoyed Club was established in 1949 (originally called The Auckland Samoyed Club). Initially located in Auckland it moved its location to Ngaruawahia in the 1960’s and then in the 1970’s to Wellington where it is still located with a zone of influence over the lower North Island. It is one of three Samoyed Specialist Clubs in New Zealand.
