There are 5 Bulldog Clubs in New Zealand who jointly have well over 150 years’ experience with the British Bulldog and French Bulldog breeds.  Breeds themselves that have been in existence for centuries and are owned and loved by thousands of families in New Zealand.
 
In 2017 the 5 clubs united to work together and established the Bulldog Club Combined Taskforce in August 2017. Members include Bulldog Club Presidents, Committee members and those with a specific interest or skill. The purpose of the Taskforce is to be an advocate for British Bulldog and French Bulldog breeds, the clubs and their members.
 
We have and are responding to the often negative statements made in the public and media about our breeds. We know that there are many happy healthy British and French Bulldogs living long and happy lives with their families in New Zealand. We try to be a voice of reason and to promote what is good about our breeds.
 
 
Since inception the Taskforce has been publicly promoting the health and welfare of the British and French bulldog.  The Taskforce has been developing a range of health and education resources for our clubs, members and the public and Taskforce members have been speaking out and responding to comments and press about the British Bulldogs and French Bulldogs in New Zealand.
