About Svenska Lancashire Heeler Klubben

The year after the clubs formation, 1990, the first show was held. Over the years, the shows (2 to 3 per year) have been judged by judges from Sweden, Finland and In 2008 the club hit two records regarding the number of entries to the exhibition, the official club show broke the world record with over 100 Lancashire Heelers.
