Established in 1955, The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Great Britain was registered by the Kennel Club in January 1957 and is the national Wheaten breed club for Great Britain.

 

Whilst the Club has expanded and adapted to meet the needs of today, the original purpose of the club at registration remains unchanged: 

 

1. To maintain and protect the breed type according to the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Breed standard approved by the Kennel Club;

2. To promote sensible breeding of the Soft-Coated Wheaten with regard to type, soundness and temperament;

3. Safeguard the health of the breed by all possible means;

4. To provide assistance to breeders and new owners; to provide information to prospective owners on breed characteristics;

5. To keep members regularly informed of the points of interest concerning the breed and progress of the Club;

6. Advance the interests of the breed by supporting shows and by educating judges;

7. To promote the interests of the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier by any other means.

A message from the Committee of
the SCWT Club of GB to our
membership and friends

 

The SCWT Club of GB has been made aware of the recent events involving one of our European members, Mrs A Butler.

 

Our Committee, and we know many of our members and friends too, have been both shocked and saddened by the details of, and circumstances surrounding, this situation.

 

Following the investigation carried out by the ISPCA, and prosecution brought by them, Mrs Butler was found guilty under the Section 61 of the Irish Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013. This has resulted in the IKC withdrawing her membership, as well as her entitlement to their facilities and services.

 

Our Committee has been in consultation with our own UK Kennel Club, who have advised us that a reciprocal agreement exists between them and the IKC. This means that as the IKC have withdrawn her membership, this now allows the SCWT Club of GB to withdraw Mrs Butler’s membership of our Club, without the need for an SGM and a membership vote.

 

Based on this advice, we have withdrawn Mrs Butler’s membership of the SCWT Club of GB with immediate effect.

 

Our 'sister' Club in Ireland, the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Ireland, have already taken similar action in relation to Mrs Butler’s membership with them.

 

We hope our actions will reassure Members of the SCWT Club of GB that we take matters of animal cruelty and neglect very seriously.

 

We would encourage our Members and Friends to report any acts of animal cruelty and/or neglect to the relevant authorities, in whichever country they live.

 

Signed
The Committee of the SCWT Club of GB
