Westie Society Special Event


"How Champions are Made"
What does it take for a Westie to become a show dog?

What traits does the dog need to be considered "Show quality"? Learn all about each step of the process from selection, evaluation and training/grooming all of the way to the show process. Audience questions will be answered. Our own in-house experts, Lee and Chuck Trudeau, will share their experience and insight. They will bring their Champion Charlotte as a demo for the presentation.

They will also provide a brief overview of the various areas that dogs compete in for performance. Earthdog, Agility, Obedience, Rally, Barn Hunt, Tracking and Nosework.

This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the opportunities your Westie, especially those of you with pups, might pursue. Please join us for this fascinating program!

Our Society functions, which consist of a membership meeting and a fun or educational program, are held during the months of February, April, June, October, and December. We'll be happy to add your name to our events mailing list. Please notify Pat O'Brien, Corresponding Secretary, of your interest in the Society. If you do not have a Westie yet, these activities offer excellent opportunities to observe the dogs in action.

Guests will receive one complimentary copy of our newsletter, The Bagpiper, when they attend the first function. Thereafter, they will receive a meeting/events notice for the following three functions. These functions are also listed on our website.
