History of the SBTCV & about the club


In the early 1970's a very small group of Stafford enthusiasts banded together to form the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club of Victoria.

The club was officially affiliated with the Victorian Kennel Control Council after 1975 and held its first championship show in 1978.
