Articles include coverage of all aspects of the Griffon fancy. In this roughly 40-44 page magazine, columnists discuss training techniques for hunting, tracking, obedience, agility, and breed ring – as well as general care and information on the good stewardship of our Griffon companions. Members celebrate special achievements with ads for their beloved Griffons. With full color front and back covers inside and out, and a wealth of fun and educational content presented in black and white in the body of the magazine, this is a publication that every serious Griffon enthusiast, pet owner, and competitor looks forward to reading, cover-to-cover every quarter.
We accept advertising from AWPGA members in good standing, as well as from approved businesses whose product or services are deemed of interest to the fancy.
