Specialty dog shows are events that feature just a single breed, or the varieties of one breed. There are about 2,000 national, regional, and local specialty shows every year.

The breed’s national parent club typically holds the national specialty or “the national” annually. At the national, fans of the breed gather year after year to share their knowledge and passion, and to bring their best dogs to compete.


The 2023 ATCA National Specialty Week is June 27 through July 2, 2023 in Colorado Springs, CO.  In the Specialty Packet you will find information about making reservations at the Host Hotel, making reservation for various meals during the week, a daily schedule of events planned during the week, and even more information. You may view the  Specialty Packet here .  More reservations and payment instructions here:

ATCC holds a Regional Specialty every year in September  in Greeley , Colorado.

There is no better place to learn about your Australian Terrier than at the Specialty Show.  It’s where dedicated fans of the breed meet together year after year, sharing their knowledge and passion and bringing their best dogs to compete.

Supported Entry shows are also a great place to meet owners and breeders who will be more than happy to talk with you and introduce their dogs  after they have shown them in the ring.
