Finn begins his 'real' show career as a puppy with Best Puppy in Group at the Red Deer Kennel Club show December 8, 2018. Judge Robert Shreve.

At 15 months of age, Finnegan did us proud at the Hub City Kennel and Obedience Club going Best of Winners, Best of Breed and Group 4 in a strong field of terriers under FCI judge Denys Jansen. He is enjoying the show ring and is very confident.

August 2019. Wildrose Cairn Terrier Club Regional Specialty. Finn awarded Best in Specialty Show by Judge Betty Anne Stenmark. 16 months old.

The start of Finn's show career in the USA. Finnegan went to his first US shows at 18 months, travelling by plane to Pennsylvania where he showed at Hatboro, Devon and the Montgomery Terroer Show. He took Winners Male and Best of Winners for a 5 point major at Devon and was third in a very competitive Bred By Exhibitor Class at Montgomery.

Finnegan has completed his Novice and Intermediate Trick titles - but his favourite trick is turning himself into a pretzel! He is now working on completing his Advanced and Expert requirements.

Finn's second trip to the USA - Feb 2020
