The Irish Wolfhound Foundation


The Education Goal is to collect and establish a library of historic and resource materials and to organize a database of information about the Irish Wolfhound, which will be available to scholars of the breed.

To provide enhanced educational opportunities for caretakers of the breed, and to foster and promote learning experiences relevant to all IW caretakers by partnering with the IWCA and regional IW organizations to institute and produce educational events.
