For eight days, our wonderful Westies will demonstrate their versatility by competing in Tracking, Agility, Earthdog, Obedience, Rally and Conformation events. For the humans on the other end of the lead, there will also be a dinner, a lively auction, and the chance to socialize with other Westie enthusiasts. For those so inclined, there are plenty of sightseeing and shopping opportunities in the greater Philadelphia area.

Please join our "WHWTCA Montgomery County National Specialty" Facebook page to get the most up-to-date information about all the exciting events offered at both our Roving Specialties and our wonderful National Specialty.
