Guinea pig shows

Cavy or guinea pig shows are a great way to meet breeders, check out the various guinea pig breeds and learn more about guinea pig care. To find out about guinea pig shows you need to contact your local Cavy Club. You can see a list of clubs on the rhs of this page.

For the larger National Shows, go to the National Cavy Club site. The British Cavy Council has a comprehensive list of standards for pure bred guinea pigs, but there are pet classes at most guinea pig shows where the guinea pigs are judged on tameness and good health. The BCC has some useful guides to showing cavies at guinea pig shows and a list of club contact details.

The Southern Cavy Club is a very large and popular club covering the South of England and Wales. You will find contact details of all the local clubs covered by the Southern Cavy Club on their website.

Cavies Magazine lists all the UK guinea pig shows as well as their results, and includes in-depth articles on breeds of guinea pig and their care.
