Welcome to the Scottish National Cavy Club. We are a small club run by dedicated members and we have been around for many years. We promote the breeding and exhibiting of cavies (guinea pigs) in Scotland.
Throughout the year we host a number of shows at different venues. We also host a number of specific breed stock shows in conjunction with our own Scottish shows. If you do not have a stud of cavies to exhibit, we do have a pet class at every show with winners for guinea pigs owned by children and adults. Every pet will take home a certificate and the winner will be awarded a rosette.For those who do have exhibition Cavies, there are best of breed rosettes on offer as well as rosettes for Best Self, Best Non Self, Best Juvenile, and Best Rare Variety not to mention rosettes to 6th place in the Grand Challenge and a range of silverware. Exhibition Cavies also have the chance to be made up to a Scottish Champion, where you will recieve a certificate, and a rosette for becoming a Champion.
We also have a show photographer on hand at the show taking pictures so If you would like a picture of your pet or your show pig. Pictures available in 2 sizes, for a small fee you will have a print of your prize piggie sent to you. Ask at show for details and prices.
Each show has tea, coffee and a selection of homebakes to be enjoyed, as well as a raffle. The club is always greatful to recieve any donations/new prizes for the raffle,
