“Is That a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier?” by Emily Holden

Posted 2/27/2018

This is a new article published in “Showsight” February 2018 issue.
Emily is a long-time member of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of America and an AKC judge. This
article talks about the early years of Wheatens in the US. Our US breed standard has been evolving
starting way back in the late 60’s and early 70’s through to present day (last modification was 2009).
The page, after the article, shows the breed standard as it exists currently. It is interesting to note that
the breed standard for any AKC breed is developed, monitored and revised by the “Parent” club for that
breed. Parent clubs are AKC member clubs and are recognized as the breed expert by the AKC.
