The Working Trials Liaison Council is made up of 18 representatives who are participants in Working Trials and two who take part in Bloodhound Working Trials. The Council acts as a channel of communication between the Kennel Club and those who compete in, judge and organise Working Trials and Bloodhound Trials. The Council was set up to represent grass-roots opinion within these two related disciplines at the Kennel Club, and to promote a better understanding among competitors of how the Kennel Club functions.
It reviews the regulations and advises the Kennel Club on any changes that may be needed, and is actively involved in strategic planning to enable Working Trials and Bloodhound Trials to continue and flourish. Council proposals can result in fundamental changes in Kennel Club policy and the Kennel Club values the important work the Councils do.
Council members are always interested in hearing the views and ideas of competitors, and will be seen competing, judging and managing at many trials during the year. Minutes and agendas for recent and forthcoming Council meetings can be found at the foot of this page.
