Events Calendar

National Specialty and Montgomery Weekend:

The ITCA’s National Specialty has been held at the Montgomery County Kennel Club Show since 1961. Here one will find the largest entry of the year providing a terrific venue for seeing Irish Terriers and meeting others who love the breed.

Montgomery weekend is a special time for the ITCA as we host our National Specialty and Annual Meeting. Each year, ITCA members from all over the world come to Pennsylvania to compete and share in their love of the breed. In addition to conformation, many come for the All-Terrier Agility and Obedience Trials that are held during the week prior to that weekend. 

Traveling Specialty:

Not everyone can come to the Montgomery weekend, so each year the ITCA and one of the ITCA Regional Clubs join forces to host an ITCA Specialty. 

Regional Club Events:

In addition to ITCA events, each of the Regional Clubs hold an annual specialty and sponsored entry events.

Show Superintendents include: Jim Bradshaw; Roy Jones; MB-F; Jim-Rau Dog Shows, LTD; Jack Onofrio, LLC

Several events are usually scheduled in a region for a given weekend. Be sure to check for other dog shows and performance trials that coincide with these dates. If you can’t make the ones listed here, there may be another opportunity so check for shows held in different parts of the country and on other dates.
