We’re pleased to announce our 2024 JCCA National Specialty!

The festivities will begin with our Top 20 Competition on Wednesday, October 23, 2024, at 6pm. Entries are by invitation only. We welcome everyone to attend and cheer on these top-winning Chin, and each attendee can cast their vote for the People’s Choice Award. As always, our three mystery judges (revealed when the competition begins) will select our 2024 JCCA Top 20 Winner. What a great start to our celebration of Chin!

Our Parent Specialty will be held on Thursday, October 24, 2024. Our judges are:

Regular Classes, Junior Showmanship & 4-6 Mo. Beginner Puppies

Our Annual General Meeting and Awards Banquet & Auction will be held at our Host Hotel on Friday evening after our National. Our menu will be announced shortly, and payment details can be found in our SHOP.

Please plan on bringing an auction item or two for our Auction after the Banquet. We plan to hold Live and Silent Auctions.

Our National Specialty is being held in conjunction with the PNW Japanese Chin Club Inaugural Specialties on October 22 & 23.  This gives you the opportunity to enter 4 specialties over 3 days!  With 2 tail shows offered by the Vancouver Kennel Club on October 26 & 27,  you can enter six shows in 5 days — 6 opportunities for majors!

We look forward to a successful, fun and fabulous National Specialty, and we’re excited about seeing all our members, old friends, new friends and their Chin in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
