Welcome To The Lucas Terrier Club of America
The Lucas Terrier Club of America is dedicated to the promotion, preservation and propagation of the Lucas terrier in the United States and Canada. Founded in 2006 by a dedicated group of enthusiasts, it is the only official Lucas terrier organization in North America.
Origins of The Breed
The Lucas terrier is a rare, endangered, British terrier, originally developed in 1949 by Sir Jocelyn Lucas of Ilmer kennel fame. The first Lucas terrier was 3/4 Sealyham terrier and 1/4 Norfolk terrier. Sir Jocelyn Lucas described his namesake as 'little Sealyhams wearing red jackets.' Today, we follow his 'formula' exactly. All dogs registered with our club can be traced back to his kennels.
Timely & Valuable Information
Throughout the site is valuable and ever-changing information on grooming, training, best practices on breeding and photos from around the world. Please come and visit us often.
Using Technology To Stay Connected
To keep our members connected, the LTCA 'meets' through Facebook, our E-newsletter and on Twitter. Sir Jocelyn Lucas may have had the 'old-fashioned' Sealyham in mind when he created the Lucas terrier, but there is nothing old fashioned about the way the LTCA embraces the latest in science and technology in guiding the breed into the future.
