The Potomac Valley Irish Wolfhound Club's annual Specialty is held around the end of March or beginning of April (specifically, starting on Sunday of the 13th weekend of the year: April 4 and April 5 in 2021) in Maryland. We host hundreds of wolfhounds and their people every year, so come on down and join us!

There is a lot of enjoyment to be found in spectating with so many hounds of all ages to admire. Also there is an information table, and a wonderful boutique with most things Irish Wolfhoundish, some not breed-specific, all very tempting and lovely, including items such as clothing, jewelry, wind chimes, door knockers, tote bags, ceramics, statues, prints, plaques, ornaments, and stationary as well as much, much more, for your shopping pleasure.

There is also enjoyment in having the show program and matching up hounds with their owners/breeders and getting a feel for who is doing what in the breed. It's a wonderful opportunity to get to know other wolfhound fanciers, too.
