HISTORY OF THE JAPAN KENNEL CLUB
It is unclear when bogs from America Europe were introduced into Japan.but by the Azuchi Momoyama era (1573-1598) at the end of the sixteenth century.reconds still exist of many breeds that were symbols of authority for some war lords. However, the closed country policy (1635-1854) of the Edo Military govemment established in 1603 meant that for a long time most people did not have an opportunity to see dogs from America and Europe.
In the middle of the nineteenth century since the Meiji revolution(1868) that inaugurated the modemnation,dogs began to be imported,but these were Iimited to a few upper class hobbyists,and were not spread to ordinary people.
Subsequently, following the First World War(1914-1918),due to the activities of Geman Shepherd military and police dogs,the use of dogs was greatly expanded.At the same time, as one part of a movement to reexamine Japanese culture, an attempt to preserve the dreeds native to Japan was considered.Organizations for each breed were established to record the bloodlines of pure breeds.
However, the Second World War which began in 1939 impacted our total living environment. It was a harsh era for dog fanciers as well. In 1945, we welcomed at long last the end of the war,but this only led to unstable social conditions.
After the war,the rapid changes in values of much of the population led to tremendous anxiety. The result was that many families kept Geman Shepherd Dogs or Japanese breeds to protect their families and property.The families of occupation forces who brought their family dog with them meant that many Japanese families were introduced to Westem dreeds.At this time even if pure breeds were cultivated,there were no public dog organizations to prove and record bloodlines.Many private bloodlines arose side by side.This meant a situation not conducive to sound dog breeding.
For this reason,along with the democraticrefonns following the war, in 1949 when we finally began to sense people were looking forward to a new age,we nominated Kijuro Shidehara as honorary chainnan and Tanzan Ishibashi as chairman. With the efforts of the first president Tamotsu Sakamoto and others, the All Japan Guard Dog Association was formed in Japan (the predesessor of the Japan Kennel Club), which obtained government recognition as a public service organization in the same year. The headquarters first dogshow ,held at Ueno Ikenohata Park on November 3,1950,had 240 dogs entered from all over the country even though it was immediately after the war. Through such activities quality cultivation of pure bred dogs made its appearance,commemorating the arrival of an age of mutual existencs between dogs and men.The organization engged in various promotional activities for dog fanciers throughout the country, including dog show and publishing newsletters.
In the mid 1950's as the lifestyle of most people started to improve, the number of people owning dogs increased. By importing quality breeds from America and Europe,both membership and registrations increased dramatically.
In 1963, along with other dog organizations in Japan,the Japan Dog Federation was formed, and became an associate member of the Federation Cynologique Internationale(FCI), taking the first step to internationalization. At the same time, 'we'welcomed judges from America and England to our dog shows and made efforts to improve dogs and to judge skills in our country.a
In 1971,we moved our administyative offices to the Kanda area in Chiyoda Ward of Tokyo(our present location) opening the JKC headquarters building.This was done to streamline the clerical procedures for ethe ever increasing registrations,and to begin offered seminars for members. In the following year along with the major countries in Asia,we formed the asia Kennel Union(AKU) and were designated as the chair country.Through this event,we aimed to promote the Asian dog world and raise the level of quality.Our members have been invited to judge dog shows in many countries in Asia
In 1976,awe changed our name to the japan Kennel Club, and along with our change in name, as the kennel club representing japan under the leadership of our third president Toyosaku Kariyabu, we initiated numerous activities to enable us to realize our role as a modem organization fitting for the newage. Judges from our organization invited to the FCI World Dog Show held in Mexico City in 1978 werehighly praised by people from many countries. Through this, we began exchanging judges with America, England, Australia, and other countries around the world. In the year following 1979,we achieved full membership in the FCI. Subsequently,in order to dispatch officials and judges to FCI world shows for research, we made efforts to improve the quality to international levels, and thus strengthened our international exchanges. The year 1982 was a year to commemorate for our organization. In March, our nine-story building was completed, and our office automation made great advances. In April, the first FCI World Dog Show held in Asia under the focused attention of the world, was heldin Tokyo. The efforts and energy of our organization were highly acclaimed. Furthermore, the world was deeply impressed at the level of dog awareness present in Japan.
In 1987, all pedigrees and other certificates were issued by computer processing. In the following year, we celebrated our fortieth anniversary in a variety of ways, including qublication of the "Forty Years of JKC History." In 1991, we began a program of training rescue dogs. In addition, we sent qualified persons overseas to handling and trimming competitions for study. we have also sent qualified persons to world events including IPO training championships, agility competitions, and junior handling competitions. They have gone with a desire to improve international friendship and acquire technical skills. Through promotion of these activities, we established mutual recognition of dog registration with the Kennel Club (KC) in 1991 and with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), in 1992 further strengthening our international position. The forth president Hirofumi Keitoku appointed in 1994 continued these aggressive policies, and our organization has continued to forge ahead.
We celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the Japan Kennel Clib in 1999, when various commemorative events were organized nationwide. In September, a commemoration ceremony was held at the Tokyo Chinzanso. In September 1999, when the huge earthquake struck Taiwan,we immediately dispatched five rescue dogs ahead of other countries for the search of missing people.
Our fifth president Mitsuteru Hoshi who took office in 2000, strengthened our structure and expanded our activities. In 2001 BH took place for the first time, and from that year on, the period from the 1st Sunday to the 2nd Sunday of Otober is designated as the JKC Dog Week, promoting the people's spirit of love toward animals. Currently, we have 1,100 affiliated clubs, and 175,000 registered membes. Furthermore, the number of dogs registered has Iast year broken the 570,000 mark,and we have achieved recognition as a truly international kennel ciub representing Asia.
Our sixth president Takemi Nagamura took office in 2004, the year of 55th anniversary of the Japan Kennel Club. In commemoration of the 55th anniversary, we tried to contribute to the nursing homes Iocated in the govemment-designated cities.the special ward of Tokyo and so on by donatung vehicles for nursing care. Furthermore, through the number of registered members and registered dogs, we have achieved recognition as the leading intemational kennel club representing Asia.
