If you do not know 2 WHWTCA members in good standing to sponsor you, please do NOT submit an application.

Please consider attending several dog shows and/or joining a Regional Westie club so that you may become familiar with a number of WHWTCA members, and they may become familiar with you. It may take several years to gain membership in the WHWTCA.

Nevertheless, we thank you for your interest, and we hope that you will consider a subscription to the Westie Imprint (the official publication of the WHWTCA) so that you may stay informed of WHWTCA news and activities.
