The Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of America National Specialty is held each October in conjunction with the Montgomery County Kennel Club, an All Terrier Dog Show. Puppy Sweepstakes and occasionally Veteran Sweepstakes are also offered.
SCWTCA also sponsors a Roving National Specialty in even-numbered years. Sanctioned Local/Regional Wheaten Clubs, Terrier Group Clubs, and/or All Breed Clubs can request to host a Roving National Specialty, therefore the location and time of year change each time. Puppy Sweepstakes and occasionally Veteran Sweepstakes are generally offered.
Members of SCWTCA with voting rights nominate and vote for the individual who will judge Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers at the National Specialty and National Roving Specialty. Judges for the the associated Sweepstakes are selected in the same way.
