ABOUT CENTRAL MAINE BRITTANY CLUB
The CMBC was incorporated in 1978 as a regional Brittany club. The club provides Mainers and northern New Englanders local opportunities for owners to work towards field championships with their dogs without having to travel long distances. Over the years, CMBC has worked hard to be able to offer AKC and American Field trials for the Brittany and other pointing breeds. The club has also gone through the necessary steps to be able to offer AKC Bench shows.
CMBC members have been extremely competitive in various venues with their Brittanys and successfully finished their dogs as National Champions, Amateur Field Champions, Dual Champions, American Field Champions, Show Champions, Agility Champions, Junior through Master Hunters, Flyball Champions and more. Currently there are several members who are actively involved in many of these dog sports resulting in a vast cumulative knowledge based on their experiences.
With a deep respect for past traditions and vision of the club's original founders, the CMBC continues to move forward to meet the needs and interests of all Brittany owners who are as versatile as the breed itself!

We Care About Responsible Dog Ownership
Club members are available to answer your questions about responsible dog ownership. The CMBC has participated in educational events such as AKC "Meet The Breeds" as part of the Club's ongoing outreach efforts to promote responsible dog ownership and introduction to the Brittany.
CMBC works closely with AKC Government Relations and frequently presents the club's perspective regarding bird hunting and hunting with dogs to Maine's Senators and Representatives. CMBC has participated in the AKC "LOBBY DAY" held in the Hall of Flags at the Maine State Capital House in Augusta - an outreach event to familiarize state legislators with the concerns of responsible dog owners and breeders.
Club members are actively involved on legislative issues regarding the rights of all hunting and sporting dog owners and the welfare of their dogs.
