3. Safeguard the health of the breed by all possible means;
4. To provide assistance to breeders and new owners; to provide information to prospective owners on breed characteristics;
5. To keep members regularly informed of the points of interest concerning the breed and progress of the Club;
6. Advance the interests of the breed by supporting shows and by educating judges;
7. To promote the interests of the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier by any other means.
