The objects of the Skye Terrier Club are to encourage the responsible ownership and breeding of Skye Terriers of correct type and temperament, and the judging of them at shows to be according to the Kennel Club standard for the breed. The Skye Terrier Club encourages all Skye owners, handlers and breeders to take part in breed showing as a great way of meeting other owner/breeders, increasing knowledge and experience of the breed standard and breed showing and mingling with crowds of Skyes and their dedicated owners.
If you’re new to Skyes and starting out in showing, however, it can be difficult to track down shows that schedule Skye classes. To help you to find your shows with classes this page lists Open and Championship Shows that schedule them. Clicking through on the names of the show society will take you to the online service that publishes the schedules and handles entries for these shows. Please note that closing dates will be at least a month before the show takes place – schedules should be available a few months before the listed show month. Shows with a year in brackets will link directly to the current show schedule.
It would be great to see these shows being supported by Skye Terrier Club members and supporters of the breed as, sadly, if we don’t use the classes we face the possibility of losing them.
Don’t forget that Open Show Competition gives you the chance to compete for several Kennel Club Awards – including the Junior Warrant and Show Certificate of Merit titles – and the Skye Terrier Club also run the Annual Angela Harris Open Show Dog of the Year competition.
If you know of any other shows that have Skye classes, please let us know so we can add them to this list!
