We've had a very busy, fun year! 

Click here to read about what we've been doing summarized in our "2022 Year in Review".

The Scottish Terrier Club of Tampa Bay was formed as a regional chapter of the Scottish Terrier Club of American (STCA) in 1987.  Although the founding members primarily resided in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, the club represents and serves Scottish Terrier owners and fans throughout the state of Florida.   STCTB is the only Scottish Terrier breed club in Florida. 

STCTB is proud to have a very active membership, currently numbering approximately 80 individuals.  Members live all over the state!

Club events and activities are held in different areas of the state, and online meetings and educational programs are conducted quarterly to engage the members.  The club's annual Scottish Terrier Specialty Show and Sweepstakes is presented in December of each year, usually in Orlando. 

Please visit our other pages on this website to learn more about our club activities, including the annual specialty show, club social and community service activities, educational programs, and the STCTB annual meeting and luncheon.  And, if you are not yet an STCTB member, we hope you will join us!  If you are already a member, we look forward to your membership renewal and your active participation.

We encourage all of our members to

be active participants in one or

more club committees.
