Welcome to The British Chihuahua Club

British Chihuahua Club Yearbook
We are now accepting advertisements for the 2016 British Chihuahua Club Yearbook, which will be on sale at next year's Crufts and thereafter at Club shows and on this website.  We are glad to announce that we have been able to reduce the prices this year to £60 per colour page and £30 for black-and-white.  Advertisements are welcomed from Chihuahua breeders and exhibitors, as well as any related business.  You do not have to be a Member to advertise in the Yearbook.

Please book early, well before the deadline of 31st December.  Last-minute changes or additions to an advert can much more easily be accommodated than trying to squeeze in another one at the last minute.  Bernard Coxhead is your contact for booking and paying for adverts.  Full details are on the booking form, which is available from Committee members at shows, on request from the Hon Secretary or can be downloaded using this link:

You can buy the current 2015 edition of the Yearbook from this website, along with those for 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2008, and some other years on request (click here for link).

2015 Championship Show
The British Chihuahua Club's 2015 Championship Show was held on Sunday 8th November at the Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre near Oxford.  We had an excellent entry with very strong competitition in many of the classes, and the show got underway promptly at 9am.

Our Smoothcoat judge Mr Luke Lim awarded the Dog CC to Scott Fleming's Taradona Titan of Brogansian and RCC to Ch Sundowner Play Misty For Me at Dachida's, owned by Miss A Davies and Mrs J Day, while the bitch CC and Best Of Breed went to Maureen and Marina Foley's Coltham Brightstar Over Tamilay with Beverley Sutton's Nock Nock Nikitos getting the RCC.  Best Puppy in Breed was another of Beverley's, Nikitos Namethatdog.  Best Smoothcoat veteran was Mrs Lyn Ison's 8½ year old Lynpix Blaze Of Glory.

Meanwhile Longcoats were judged by Lee Humphreys, picking the outstanding Jap/Fr/Int Ch Peregrine Jp Go My Way handled by Mr Willie Heap for the Dog CC (his third) and BOB, with Mrs Lesley Adams' Ch Hollyel Topaz Chancer JW in a rare second place taking RCC.  In bitches she picked out Jim and Kath Culverhouse's Lykath's Mystic Moonflower for the CC, with RCC to Sharon Robson's Tidos Cherry Blossom.  Sharon also collected Best Puppy in Breed with Tidos Rock Dude.  Best Longcoat Veteran was Phil and Linda Cater's 9-year-old bitch Pixels Willow ShCM.

It was now time for our Best in Show judge Mrs Norma Armstrong, who gave BIS to Jap/Fr/Int Ch Peregrine Jp Go My Way, RBIS to Ch Hollyel Topaz Chancer JW, Best Puppy in Show Tidos Rock Dude, RBPIS to Mr & Mrs Hill's Lynpix The Mexican with Becanna, and Best Veteran in Show to Lynpix Blaze Of Glory.

2015 Open Show
Our 2015 Open Show was held on Sunday 3rd May 2015 at the friendly venue of Breaks Manor Youth Centre, Link Drive, Hatfield, Herts AL10 8TP.  The weather was rainy this year so judging took place in a single ring indoors.

Smoothcoats were judged by Mrs Diane Fothergill, Longcoats by Mr Eddie Bishop, and Ms Vicky Osborne judged Best in Show.  The principal winners are shown in the picture above. Left to right, they are: our President, Mrs Norma Armstrong; Mr Nick Farrugia with BIS Coltham Crusader avec Cholas; Ms Vicky Hawkins; Longcoat judge Mr Eddie Bishop; Mr Steve Rooney with BPIS Zoya's Kingdom Golden Boy at Yorone; Mrs Pam Bungard with BVIS Ch Ballybroke Mandy; and Mrs Susan Lee and Mrs Sandra Stangoe, with Mrs Stangoe's Reserve BIS Stanghurst Star Attraction and RBPIS Stanghurst Antonio.

Don't be tricked out of your money
With the continuing popularity of Chihuahuas, people desperate to obtain a puppy are sending off large amounts of money to people they've never met for dogs they've never seen.  Sadly many of them never receive the puppy they were promised, or ever see their money again.  Read our page Buying A Chihuahua to see how the Club can put you in touch with Club members who may have puppies for sale.  Our members are obliged to abide by our code of ethics
