Breed Seminar
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 Talk and question-and-answer session in the morning presented by Aimee Davies (Dachida), with a Judging Competence assessment in the afternoon, at a cost of £25.00 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 morning breed presentation only, minus the afternoon 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.  Application forms can be obtained from the Hon Secretary or you can download a copy here to print out, complete and send in.

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
