IWCC Handbook - Code of Ethics


IWCC Code of Ethics


Le Code d’Ethique Officiel du Club Canadien du Lévrier Irlandais


The Irish Wolfhound Club of Canada (IWCC) Code of Ethics applies to all members.  The COE was revised and an additional section was added in 2017 to specify breeder ethics. 

This Code of Ethics was approved at the 2017 IWCC AGM.

Its purpose is to provide a set of  standards and requirements relating to the proper maintenance, breeding, selling and overall protection of our beloved Irish Wolfhounds.

This understanding reflects on our general priorities of hound welfare and responsible, researched breeding practices.

Breach of these provisions may result in suspension or expulsion from Club membership and/or reporting to the relevant authorities for legal action, as appropriate.


All existing Club members and new applicants must sign and/or agree to the 2017 COE to be accepted for membership in the IWCC.
