With great regret, the board of the Airedale Terrier Special Club Austria announces, that the WTWU World Championship 2020 must be canceled without replacement due to the current corona virus situation and the associated problems in each individual country!

Since it cannot be estimated how the situation will develop, because preparing the dogs with appropriate training is impossible, because borders are closed and the private situation of people is also badly affected, there is no other solution. In addition: health comes first!

There are currently no new decisions regarding the future hosting of the World Championship. We will continue to report here.

We would like to thank everyone who has already put a lot of work into the preparations for their commitment and support. And we wish all of you: stay healthy!

Corona Virus:
Unfortunately, the Corona Virus does not leave our planned World Championship without a trace. Since March 10, 2020, the Austrian Federal Government has defined various, sometimes extensive and also drastic measures that severely restrict "normal life". In addition to closing universities, schools and all shops - except grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. - events are also severely restricted or prohibited.

For example, indoor events may not include more than 100 people; for outdoor events, the limit is 500 people. The World Championship - as an outdoor event - would by no means reach this limit, but now there are also border closures and entry bans, which currently make the situation difficult and unpredictable.

The Austrian Federal Government has initially stipulated these measures until the beginning of April or will continue to adjust them. The board of the Airedale Terrier Spezialklub has therefore decided to wait for this deadline. Perhaps a trend is already foreseeable and we can decide whether the World Championship can take place or not.

We will definitely keep you up to date. The board of the Airedale Terrier Spezialklub wishes all dog handlers, their families and friends all the best and above all: STAY HEALTHY!!!
