A11 Disciplinary Case – Mr R Gorman

24 July 2014    16:00

At its meeting on 18 July 2014, the Kennel Club Disciplinary Sub-Committee considered a complaint brought by the Kennel Club under Rule A11 a (1) (b) against Mr R Gorman.

Having carefully considered the evidence, the committee find that the complaint, namely that Mr Gorman behaved discreditably and prejudicially to the interests of the canine world in the breach of Kennel Club Regulation J.9.b (10) with the alleged harsh handling of the English Springer Spaniel, Hollydrive Pretty Lucy of Commonshall, at the North West Ulster Spaniel Club Novice (AV Spaniel) Stake on 16th November 2013, is upheld.

The Committee impose the following penalties:

1.         To warn him as to his future conduct                                           [A11 j (1)]

2.         To censure him                                                                          [A11 j (2)]
