Cavies originated in the Andes of South America and were introduced to Europe in the 1500s. Also known as guinea pigs, cavies are a favourite with pet owners and breeders because they are sociable and intelligent. Many different breeds are judged at the Perth Royal Show along with pet cavies. Fancy dress and dioramas have become a tradition at the event and never fail to draw crowds.
The Cavy (Guinea Pigs) Competition is on the Wednesday and Thursday of the Perth Royal Showin the Creatures Great & Small Pavilion.
Pet Cavies, Fancy Dress and Diorama classes are judged on the Wednesday and breeds are judged on the Thursday.
Judging will take place in the morning, while presentation of awards will follow shortly afterwards.
