Membership

There are three types of membership open to all persons 18 years of age and older who are in good standing with the American Kennel Club and who subscribe to the purposes of the Mt. Hood Doberman Pinscher Club.

Before applying for membership, individuals should plan to attend as many meetings as possible to get to know the club in general and its members. Sponsorship of two MHDPC members is required with the submission of the membership application.  Once an application is submitted to the club, a reading of the application is done at the next general membership meeting and the applicant is encouraged to attend.  A second reading is done at the following general membership meeting and after any discussion, a vote is made on membership.

Regular membership meetings of the Club serve a number of purposes: to conduct club business (plan events, approve board recommendations, etc.), Doberman education (presentation of interest to Doberman owners) and to socialize. Guests are welcome at most meetings.

MHDPC general club meetings are usually held the third Wednesday of every other month at 7:00PM  at the Tualitan Village Inn.

Benefits of belonging include:

Holter Monitor Testing

Library

Education

An Associate member may become an active member by written request submitted to the Board for approval.

Membership dues are $20.00 per year for individual and associate members and $30.00 per year for household members.
