Regional Westie Specialty Shows

At least 16 regional West Highland White Terrier clubs hold a regional specialty show, usually in conjunction with an all-breed club dog show. These are held around the country from January until November each year.

All show-giving regional clubs are asked to furnish the dates of their specialties show(s) and the name(s) of their judges.

You may wish to check the individual clubs' website or superintendent's sites periodically for updates as some clubs are offering multiple days of supported entries. Included are the specialty shows that are offering regular and sweepstakes classes.

All judges are pending AKC/CKC approval. Many of the regional specialties offer obedience, rally, agility, and/or earthdog events. Information is subject to change and you should check the individual club's website periodically for updates to the list.
