During the 80’s & 90’s the number of Manchester Terriers gaining their titles doubled and there were at least 10 new Imports during this time.


In 1996 The Manchester Terrier Club of New South Wales (Australia) was formed and plays an active part in promoting of our breed across the whole of Austra- lia. It publishes a quarterly newsletter and holds an Annual Breed Specialty Show.

At this time it is not unusual to see: 5 to 7 Manchester’s being shown in Tasmania, 2 to 4 in Victoria, 3 to 4 in Western Australia, 1 in South Australia, 1 or 2 in Queensland, and about the same in New South Wales.

The second one is the annual National All Breeds Point Score Competition conducted by
