We Support and Promote New Zealand's Exclusive and Rare Cavy Breeds

NZ Unique Cavies

NZ Unique Cavies is a Cavy Club to support and promote Cavy (Guinea Pig) pedigree breeds that are exclusive or rare in New Zealand.  Connected with seven Independent Cavy Clubs across the country, members are continuing to be breeding and exhibiting our unique and rare cavies and aiming for success in pedigree main cavy shows.

New Zealand is home to five exclusive pedigree cavy breeds, which are New Zealand Plumes, Tweeds, Pandas, New Zealand Peruvians and Bonnets. We have added Dark Eyed Whites as a rare breed as it is being worked on to bring it back into higher numbers, for now.  Each breed has it's own page with photos, facts and pedigree main show standards.  Some of the breeds was created in the 1970's and has a good deal of history and our newest breed the 'Tweeds' was created recently and the breed is very popular within the cavy fancy.  All unique breeds have been created by very experienced cavy judges that went through many years working on them.

Independent Cavy Clubs are the only cavy clubs our unique breeds are supported and exhibited in, please show your support by visiting our cavy shows and spot some of New Zealand's exclusive cavies.  Visit Clubs for details.

New Zealand Unique Cavies can help connect you to experienced exhibitors of each breed and NZCJA (New Zealand Cavy Judges Association) Judges if you need support and advice.  It's important to reach out to the right people.  The club will continue to increase awareness and promote our unique breeds.

New Zealand's exclusive breeds are equal to all breeds and should not be discounted.  It's fantastic to have pedigree cavy breeds created in NZ! Join us at being proud of what the cavy fancy has accomplished.  Join our community.
