Heelwork to Music Working Party

The Heelwork to Music Working Party acts as a channel of communication between the Kennel Club and those who compete in Heelwork to Music and Freestyle. The Working Party was set up to represent grass-roots opinion within the Kennel Club, and to promote a better understanding among competitors of how the Kennel Club functions. It has played an essential role in reviewing the regulations for licensed Heelwork to Music competitions and continues to advise the Kennel Club on any regulation changes that may be needed.
