Hannu Huttu

The Finnish Kennel Club is the oldest canine organisation in the Nordic countries. It was founded in 1889. Measured by membership, it is a large canine organisation even by international standards. The Finnish Kennel Club has more than 150,000 members. In addition to this, the FKC is the umbrella organisation for some 1,800 Finnish canine activity organisations.

As an expert of the field, the Finnish Kennel Club disseminates information about dog-related matters. We maintain active contact with the different stakeholder groups of the dog world, monitor legislation and promote the welfare of dogs both nationally and internationally. This way, the Kennel Club can promote the breeding of pedigree dogs with regard to temperament, health and usability.
