American Hairless Terrier Association

The American Hairless Terrier Association, AHTA, was formed  by a group of dedicated owners and enthusiasts of the American Hairless Terrier (AHT).  Prior to January 1, 2004, the breed was recognized as the Rat Terrier - Hairless Variety.  In 1999, when the Rat Terrier was seeking breed recognition with the United Kennel Club (UKC), the AHTA members felt they could best accomplish their goals by aligning themselves with their parent breed, the Rat Terrier, the UKC Parent Club (ARTA), and the UKC. In so doing, they had agreed to present the Hairless Variety of the Rat Terrier according to the guidelines of UKC.  Effective January 1, 2004, the American Hairless Terrier became its own BREED and no longer competes directly against the Rat Terrier in the breed ring.  This is an exciting time for our young breed.  We, as a club, are looking forward to the future! 

Mission Statement

The AHTA sponsors UKC events welcoming all who wish to help make the club grow and who wish to exhibit their dogs in the spirit of Good Sportsmanship.
