You are welcome to attend events without participating in them in order to meet other whippet fanciers or to learn about the breed. When attending events for information or curiosity, we simply ask that you approach handlers (owners) when they are not competing and understand that they might be busy or focused on the task at hand and not able to immediately answer your questions.
Please note that lure coursing/chase ability practices will be announced on our Facebook page. Judges, premiums, and entry forms will be added as they become available.

Events Held by the Whippet Club of BC
Depending on the year, the club has hosted Chase Ability Program events, Canine Good Neighbour tests, CKC Obedience and Rally-O trials (often in February), specialty conformation shows, chase ability events, and numerous agility mini-trials. Full weekend CKC agility trials are usually held the first weekend of both April and October.
Our lure coursing trial weekends usually take place at the end of April and third weekend in September. We also run occasional lure coursing/chase ability practices.
