Popularly known as "The Wales and West" our primary focus is the area from West Midlands down to Cornwall in England and most of Wales
Our activities are centred in that area but we support the cause of Shih Tzu and their owners from all over the country and accept members nationwide and further.
Mrs Pauline Brook - Sarosim
We are sorry to announce that Mrs Pauline Brook of the Sarosim affix has recently passed away. Pauline had been in the breed for many years both as an exhibitor and Championship Show judge and the highlight of her judging career came in 2009 when she judged the breed at Crufts.
Our sympathies and condolences go to all her family and friends at this sad time.
Shih Tzu Club of South Wales & Western Counties Championship Show & Open Show 8th November 2020 - Cancelled
As a result of the current position with COVID 19 and, the Kennel Club’s recent directive advising that Shows up to the end of September be cancelled and that societies give serious consideration to Shows taking place for the remainder of the year after that date, the Committee have regretfully taken the decision to cancel both our rearranged Championship Show and Open Show that are scheduled for the 8th November 2020.
Having already cancelled the March Championship Show, we feel that we cannot afford to take the risk of incurring further financial losses, should we have to cancel again nearer the show date, if regulations would still not allow them to proceed.
In addition, if shows were allowed to proceed by then, COVID-19 is still likely to be prevalent and the Committee feels that the risks of holding an indoor show in a confined space, where social distancing would be difficult is currently too great a risk to the health of the exhibitors to take.
As a result of this, we will now look to schedule two Championship shows and an Open Show next year and will inform you of the new dates as soon as possible.
We should like to stress that this decision has not been taken lightly and would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused. We look forward to welcoming you all to our rescheduled shows next year
