Happy New Year! We have been busy making plans for the 2019 specialty. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the breed recognition in Canada (1999). This year we are kicking things up a notch for our celebration. Our weekend, hosted by the Oakville Kennel Club is offering 5 sets of points over 3 days. 

Take a look below at some of the events happening on Sat. Sept. 7th.

Grab and Go snacks/beverages will be available all day long. Just stop by our club booth when you need to. We will have a catered dinner following the judging seminar in one of the banquet rooms. The cost for the dinner is $20 per person.  
Menu will include: artisan breads/butter, penne primavera (oil & grilled veggies), a choice of portobello mushroom or breaded chicken, mixed greens with balsamic dressing.

Please RSVP to by September 1, 2019 and include your choice of chicken or portobello. Payment can be made by etransfer to the same address.

During the Specialty show we will have Mr. Gordon Hayburn providing ring side mentoring for our judge. 

The IRWSCC will also host a judges seminar immediately following Best in Specialty. Our presenters will be Gail Harrison and Pat Ua Siaghail. This will only take place if there is enough interest in attending. You can RSVP your attendance to Pat at by September 1, 2019.

We are happy to announce that Susan Allen (subject to change) will be our judge for sweepstakes this year. 

 Noreena Seery will be judging the juniors.

We will have a raffle table set up at our club booth and the draw will be held around 5pm (TBD). If you have something you'd like to donated to the raffle please drop it off in the am of Sept 7th if not before.

In addition to our regular raffle we will be holding a special 20th Anniversary Raffle. This will include buying tickets from a club member $2 each or 3 for $5.

There will be RV parking at the site more information to follow when available. There is also a Motel 6 nearby and they take dogs. There is no rate with them but looks like it's about $95/night at the time of our show. Please book early!
