Free Public Events
Each year we reach out to Westie owners to invite them to join us for a few hours to learn more about our breed and our club and to have some FUN. The event has been and Open House, Westie Spa Day or an Howl-O-Ween Party.
Written information about the the Breed Standard, AKC Conformation and Performance Events is made available.
The event may include demonstrations, refreshments, games, door prizes and a sales boutique of Westie items.
In the past, demonstrations have been “Tidy-Up” pet Westie grooming, Canine Good Citizen testing, and Obedience, Earthdog and Agility activities.
We encourage Westies who are well behaved, on a short leash and up-to-date on their vaccinations to attend (Lots of Westies in a room can be a LOT of FUN).
Individuals looking for a Westie can come for information and to talk to breeders. All owners looking to spend time with their Westies are welcome.
Some of the seminars we have held are:
- Show Grooming with Randell Dickerson
- Positive Reinforcement/Clicker Training with Sue Ailsby
- Introduction to Performance Events — Tracking, Earth Dog, Agility and Obedience with Debra Duncan
- A four-session Earth Dog workshop
These seminars are announced in advance and are open to non-Westie club members as well. Participants register for the seminar and pay a reasonable fee.
