Welcome to The British Chihuahua Club
The British Chihuahua Club are holding a breed-specific seminar and judges' hands-on assessment
on Saturday 31 October 2015 at Shenstone Village Hall, Lichfield WS14 0LT. The day will comprise
a breed presentation in the morning, with the assessment in the afternoon, at a cost of £25
including lunch. The assessment is aimed at those judges currently on a Chihuahua breed club B List,
who are aspiring to progress on to the A3 list.
The breed presentation only, minus the hands-on assessment, is also open to those interested in learning
more about the breed, and will cost £15 including lunch.
Places will be limited in both cases. If you wish to register an interest, please contact the

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:
