Welcome to the Cavies: also known as Guinea Pigs.  Guinea pigs are beautiful, bright, vocal animals and very popular pets. The Cavy Section is open all day, until 5 p.m. Judging commences at 10.00 a.m. and is in progress throughout the day.

There are many breeds of Guinea pigs on show from the Self Cavy which is a smooth haired guinea pig and for showing purposes must be one colour.

The Non Self varieties may also be smooth haired in various colours, or they can be long haired or have rosettes. Cavies have hair not fur and it can be straight, curly or frizzy.

The Pet Section is very popular, and is divided into classes for the Adult Exhibitors and Child Exhibitors, guinea pigs entered in this section are judged only on cleanliness, fitness and friendliness and can be any variety or colour.

For the first time there will be a Novice Pet Section which is a separate section to the Open Show and is open to anyone who has never shown before and who has never won a 1st prize card.  

Entries for this Section ONLY can be taken on the morning of the show.

If you have a pet guinea pig we would like to invite you to come along where help and advice will be available on show day to all newcomers in the art of preparing and showing your pet.

If you have a pet that is fat and friendly and bit of a character we would love to meet them.

Penning is available on Sunday evening the 10th July from 7 pm to 9 pm

Monday morning from 7 am.

Guaranteed Prize money awarded to all classes.


We welcome any enquiries if you wish to enter any of these classes please do not hesitate to contact the Section Secretary for advice (cavies@stithiansshow.org.uk).
